Fall decorating comes easy to me because my favorite colors are found in this season. I wanted to add a twist to my normal fall palette, so I made some fabric buntings that blended a sky blue color with traditional fall colors. These flag buntings are no-sew and super easy, but so much more time consuming then you’d imagine!
How to make no-sew flag buntings:
1. Cut out a diamond-shaped template from a piece of paper. I recommend either large and skinny or really tiny to make them more cutesy.
2. Using a cutting mat and rolling fabric cutter, lay your template on top of your fabric and cut (for straight lines, use a metal ruler). I layered two pieces of fabric to speed up the process.
3. Cut out triangles from double-sided fusible web. Make them shorter than the height of your folded pennant if you want to be able to slide them along the garland.
4. Iron after peeling off the paper from the fusible web triangles and sandwiching between a folded pennant. Be sure to leave room at the top to slide in a strand of twine. Proceed with all your pennants.
5. Thread all the ironed-shut pennants onto a piece of twine, spacing to your liking.
I really like how the mantel turned out. I used some fragrant dried flowers I bought at an arts fair and kept things simple. I created the Indian corn centerpiece using this tutorial from Eddie Ross. And the wood sign I painted a couple years back. Now I’m ready for some warm fires!
