Here's what you need:
- Wooden skewers
- Paper - I used origami paper but you can use pretty much any type you like
- Thread - any colour you like
- A small piece of card to use as a template
- A thin, sharp needle
Wrap the thread around the top of the skewer several times and tie in a knot twice. If the thread seems a little lose you can run a glue stick across the thread and let it dry before moving on to the next step.
The length of the bunting is entirely up to you. Once you feel you have enough triangles, wrap the end around the second skewer and tie twice as before. Again, rubbing glue stick across the thread can help it stay in place and should dry to be invisible.
Lie the bunting flat and space the triangles evenly and then you're all done!
It's great for a cake topper, for wrapping around cakes (minus the sticks, of course!), you can even add a splash of colour to house plants or even use it without the sticks for card making.
