What You Need

  • Measuring tape
  • Patriotic bunting
  • Scissors
  • Serger or sewing machine
  • Thumbtacks or duct tape for hanging

Step 1: Choose Hanging Spot

Bunting flags look best when they're hung from a porch railing, along the roofline, or under each window. Choose your spot wisely, as the surface will determine how you'll attach the bunting.

Step 2: Measure and Cut

Measure the length of the spot you want your bunting to hang. Then measure and trim the amount of bunting you need, cutting away any excess fabric along the scalloped edge. Finish the edge by serging it or sewing a row of stay stitching.

Step 3: Hang and Adjust

Hang the bunting from your desired spot. If it's a pliable surface, attach with thumbtacks. Otherwise adhere the bunting with duct tape.

Editor's Tip: Printed bunting flags are realistically shaded and will look as though draped bunting is fluttering in the wind, even when the yardage is tightly stretched.
