DIY no sew bunting – doily hearts

I have had these doily hearts for more than a decade and have used them in lots of different ways. If you can’t find this shape in the shops, go for the usual round variety that would work just as well.

You will need

Doilies in the shape of your choice | Natural twine


Only one step!

Simply thread your twine through the top of the doily and space them as evenly as you can.


Now simply hang them up out or inside and to steal the show!


Happy styling,

DIY no sew bunting – intellectual high

I am a firm believer that it’s not really a party without bunting!

Therefore I am sharing with you five no sew two step bunting tutorials this week so you have no excuse not to include this festive element to last you throughout the year.

First up … put your old paperbacks that’s half eaten by moths to good use by turning the precious pages into bunting flags.

If you cringe at the thought of this rather scan and print pages out of a book for the same effect.

You will need:

String of natural twine | Heart shaped punch | Old paperback novel or printed pages thereof | Stapler


Step 1

Tear the pages carefully from the paperback and cut the heart shape with your punch at the bottom. Keep the heart shaped confetti as they would be a lovely echo on your table setting. Alternatively keep the confetti for a later date.


Step 2 

Fold over the top of the page and string the twine through it. Secure it all in place with a stapler on each side of the fold over.


All done in two easy steps!

If you are hanging your bunting outside remember to rather take it down by the evening so it doesn’t damage. Pack it away nicely and you will be able to use it over and over again for all sorts of festivities.


Happy styling,
