LIFE AS YOU LIVE IT: DIY "Boston Love" Bunting Flag Banner

DIY "Boston Love" Bunting Flag Banner

15 August 2013

There is this beautiful exposed brick wall in the apartment that makes the entire unit look 10 times better!
I felt as though this beautiful wall needed a pop of color and some love, so I created several fun and seasonal bunt flag banners to decorate it with. 

With that being said, let me introduce you to the current banner.

These were a ton of fun, and super easy to make!

I printed the templates for all the letters from here, and then cut them all out.

I mounted each of the flags on a piece of card stock using double sided tape.
This helps to make the banner stronger.
Once it was mounted, I cut out a slightly larger flag.

Once everything was cut, pasted and mounted...
I took yards and yards of hemp and braided it all together.

I hung the hemp up, and attached the flags using mini wooden clothespins which I found at Walmart.

The reason I decided to just attach the flags using the clothespins opposed to just punching holes and stringing the hemp through is because I would like to use the flags and hemp for other themed banners, and this method made the whole switching them out process much easier!

I have many, many more flag bunt banners in the works and can't wait to share!
