Beyond Spring: 15 Flower Arrangements That Will Inspire Your Own DIY Bouquets

Buying flowers for your family and friends is a great way to celebrate a special occasion, or even just to make them feel special on a normal day. Sometimes it’s just nice to have flowers around the house for yourself! However, unless you visit a boutique florist or pay additional prices, the arrangement of your flowers might not be as pretty or fancy as you had in mind. If you’re a DIY enthusiast, however, then that’s no problem at all!

Check out these 15 easy DIY flower arrangement inspirations that will have you reorganizing and rearranging your next bouquet for the better the second it’s in your hands!

1. DIY submerged flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYDIY submerged flowers

Sometimes buying yourself just a few little blossoms is a great way to brighten up your space and your day. If you like pretty, unconventional things, you need to see Momtastic‘s submerged flower idea! Choose glasses that are the right size for each flower you bought and follow the instructions to weight each one down with flat crafting marbles.

2. Pedestal and foam flower arrangements

VIEW IN GALLERYDIY Pedestal and foam flower arrangements

If you have a beautiful, wide stand that you want to turn into an arrangement but that doesn’t hold flowers in place well, all is not lost! Your local crafting store will have foam cubes design specifically for arranging flowers. Put on in the centre of the stand and poke the end of the flower stems into it. Arrange them all the way around until the foam no longer shows and voila!

3. Teapot flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYRefreshing Teapot flowers

Rather than using a traditional vase to hold your flowers, why not make things look a little more vintage? Placing your blossoms in a teapot is one of the easiest ways to get that look! We love these little yellow flowers in a stark white teapot on Pinterest.

4. Glass bottles and scrapbooking paper

VIEW IN GALLERYGlass bottles and scrapbooking paper

Sometimes the vase is just as cute as the flowers, especially if you make it yourself! Find a clean, empty glass bottle that fits a few stems through the opening and neck. Before you put the flowers in, cut a strip of pretty patterned scrapbooking paper and tape it in place with washi tape. Tie it around the middle with a piece of jute string or twine for detail and pop your blossoms in the top. Check out how Decor 8 made these pretty little bottles!

5. Rainbow water and white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYRainbow water and white flowers

If you’re looking for a way to brighten up the room but your favourite flowers are simple white ones, you can still incorporate colour in how you display them! We absolutely adore the idea of adding a little bit of food colouring gel to water in a clear glass vase and popping simple white flowers in the top, just like Paper and Cakery did!

6. Foam ball flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYFoam ball flowers

We didn’t realize until we saw this arrangement on Pinterest how pretty it can look to have no vase or container at all! Instead, try sticking the end of each stem into a foam sphere from the craft store so you create a small floral dome that’ll look perfect in the centre of your dinner table!

7. Citrus vase

VIEW IN GALLERYCitrus vase

This floral decor from Pinterest just screams “summer” to us! For a little extra scent on top of the flowers, fill a mason jar with halved lemons and limes and plant your flowers in the middle. Besides smelling great, the arrangement is totally gorgeous!

8. A standing bouquet

VIEW IN GALLERYA standing bouquet

If you’ve chosen flowers with very stiff stems then all you need is a ribbon and a wide glass to make this adorable standing arrangement. Tie the flowers near the very bottom of the blooms and spread the stems out so the bottoms are wide enough to support the flowers on all sides and keep them standing, just like this cute bouquet from Pinterest.

9. Cocktail flower

VIEW IN GALLERYCocktail flower

We love the stylish appearance of this adorably simple arrangement on Style Me Pretty! Trim the stem close to the flower’s head so it’s short enough to fit in the shallow cup and let it stick out the top like a decorative cocktail drink.

10. Flower monograms

VIEW IN GALLERYFlower monograms

This particular craft from Parcel Post is actually made with silk flowers, but we think it would be absolutely beautiful with real blooms for a special occasions! Find hollow chunky letters, use hot glue to fill them with green plant foam, and stick the flower stems in the foam so they fill up the letters completely.

11. Candy arrangement

VIEW IN GALLERYColorful Candy arrangement

We love this idea from Pinterest for Easter or kids’ birthdays in the springtime! Find a clear vase, fill it with colourful jelly beans, and plant the stems of your flowers right in the centre.

12. Spray painted mason jar planters

VIEW IN GALLERYSpray painted mason jar planters

Whether you choose to include the little bunny rabbit silhouette or whether you prefer solid colours, this spray painted jar idea makes for a cheerful and stylish arrangement. Check out how it’s done on The CSI Project!

13. Teacup flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYBeautiful Teacup flowers

You might think tulips and patterned teacups would make a very busy looking combination, but we’re in love with the look! Check out how Slim Paley added a vintage flair this way by placing purple tulips into teacups of contrasting colours!

14. Chalkboard message herb gardens

VIEW IN GALLERYSONY DSC

Painting a few simple planting pots with chalkboard paint is an easy way to customize your own display. Label them with the types of herbs planted, write inspirational quotes that you’d like to see all day, or give them to someone as a gift with a loving message message on them like these ones from Pinterest!

15. Upcycled graphic tin can planters

VIEW IN GALLERYGraphic tin can planters

This great tutorial by Home Talk shows you how to create adorable vintage looking planters simply by pasting images you like onto large tin cans. We love the homey effect such a simple arrangement gives the entire room, as thought you picked the flowers straight from the garden outside and grabbed the nearest tin to display their beauty!

15 Flower Crown Designs That Will Inspire You to Make Your Own

Whether you’re getting ready for a summer wedding, planning your looks for your next music festival in the sun, or you’re just really in love with the style, flower crowns are a gorgeous trend. Because they’re hot right now you can find them in most accessory stores, but you already know we’re big fans of making things ourselves! Your flower crown might be made of material and silk flowers or you might go all out and use fresh flowers and green leaves.

Check out these 15 inspiration shots of differently styled flower crowns to get your creative senses buzzing. Whether you’re gluing the blossoms to a hairband or wrapping fresh sprigs to a ribbon with crafting wire, your flower crown will look just as gorgeous as any of these!

1. Deep pink roses and berry pink lips

VIEW IN GALLERYDeep pink roses and berry pink lips

(Photo by Kelsea Holder)

One of the best ways to incorporate your flower crown into your look, particularly if your outfit is monochromatic, is to match the blossoms to your lipstick. A deep pink flower looks beautiful with a berry coloured pout!

2. Dusty orange blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYDusty orange blossoms

(Photo by We Heart It)

Very lightly coloured flowers, like this soft, dusty orange are perfect for a whimsical summer look. Try weaving long hair up into the back of the hairband you’ve built your flower crown on for a bohemian princess effect.

3. Green ivy with white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYGreen Iivy with white flowers

(Photo by Feather and Stone)

If you’re looking for a slightly more unconventional flower crown, this one’s for you! Simple white blossoms make it look whimsical and feminine, but the larger incorporation of green ivy sets this style apart form other ones and makes it look more understated and natural.

4. Small flowers and a hair braid

VIEW IN GALLERYSmall flowers and a hair braid

(Photo by Lindsey Shaun)

Speaking of understated but gorgeous looks, this style that incorporates tiny blossoms and baby’s breath makes a different kind of flower crown all together. Instead of gluing or wiring flowers to a hairband, use a braid as the “crown” and work the flowers and sprigs directly into the hair.

5. Loose baby’s breath

VIEW IN GALLERYLoose baby's breath

(Photo by Rebekah Westover)

Do you love the way that the baby’s breath in the previous picture looks so much that you wish for more? Instead of using it as solely an accent flower in your flower crown, try making it the centre of attention!

6. Thistles with white blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYGreens with few blossoms

(Photo by Ciara Richardson)

Here’s another one for your unconventional flower crown category! Making it with thistles gives a stronger, less whimsical look but adding a few white blossoms among the purple blooms keeps things soft enough for a wedding or special event.

7. Silk butterfly crown

VIEW IN GALLERYSilk butterfly crown

Okay, so technically this look isn’t a flower crown, but it reminded us so much of the same whimsical looks that flower crowns often achieve. Shake things up a bit by building a crown out of material or silk butterflies the way you’d normally use flowers.

8. Blossoms and lace

VIEW IN GALLERYBlossoms and lace

(Photo by Maria Mack)

If you’re looking for an even prettier look than a flower crown is already going to give you by default, try combining your flowers with lace! Let the lace run along your hairline or rest lightly against your forehead for a lovely, intricate look.

9. Matching the bouquet

VIEW IN GALLERYMatching the bouquet

(Photo by Julie Siddi)

If you’re creating a flower crown specifically for a wedding, then one of the best ways of incorporating it into the look is to match it with the bouquet. The balance between the two bunches of flowers looks absolutely beautiful in pictures!

10. Flower crown tucked under

VIEW IN GALLERYFlower crown tucked under

(Photo by Delbarr Moradi)

Just because it’s called a flower “crown” doesn’t mean you have to wear it like a tiara! Try nestling your blossoms underneath your updo so the bun rests lightly on top of them instead. The look is unique but still classic enough for timeless pictures.

11. Blossoms with herbs

VIEW IN GALLERYBlossoms with herbs

(Photo by Michelle Boyd)

Many flowers together can be a little overwhelming looking, especially if you have slight features. In order to get that same volume in your crown without letting it take over your look, consider weaving in some herb plants instead of big floral leaves.

12. Cascading flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYCascading flowers

(Photo by MW Foto)

Why not consider some pretty asymmetry in your look? Letting a few flowers hang down on one sides looks beautiful, especially with some more voluminous gathered blossoms to balance the look out on the other side.

13. Pink cherry blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYPink cherry blossoms

(Photo by Serenity Crystal)

A simple ring of pink cherry blossoms is the perfect look for a summer music festival. It’s pretty, but it’s low maintenance and easy to make. It also won’t distract from the outfit you’ve put together!

14. Fluffy white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYFluffy white flowers

(Photo by Laura Murray)

Sometimes big is the way to go! Large, fluffy flowers look beautiful with hair that has some volume but not enough to battle with the flowers for space. Choosing white ones looks very clean and well put together.

15. Asymmetrical berries and blooms

VIEW IN GALLERYAsymmetrical berries and blooms

If your motto is “go big or go home”, then you might be looking for a little something more than simple flowers. Adding berries to a huge blossom is a great way to mix colours and draw the eye to your face.

Wonderful DIY Pumpkin Seed Flower Decoration

VIEW IN GALLERYPumpkin-Seed-Flower-Christmas-Ornament-WONDERFUL DIY F

These pumpkin seed flowers are cute and beautiful, they are nice home decoration . I have never know about making a flower using pumpkin seeds , this is a very creative idea, and it’s very simple .
For making pumpkin seed flowers, first cut discs of card sheet, then glue the pumpkin seeds in concentric circles with the help of a hot glue gun , don’t forget to leave a circle empty in the center for the seeds to come. Then spread some hot glue over the center and quickly put peppercorns in mixed colors over it and wait for it dried ( I would like to put a family picture in the center ) . You can make a loop of ribbon and hot glue it to the back of the flower for hanging. That’s all ! Be sure make as many as you like and hang them on your wreath or garland. Enjoy ~~

Twine is a wonderfully versatile craft material that you can use to hang mobiles, string ornaments, wrap vases and bottles, tie packages, make banners, and form pompoms – and these are just a few of its countless uses.
If you already own a Bow and flower maker tool, then you probably already tried making twine flowers. But in fact, for these little cuties, you don’t really need a special tool.
Making twine flowers is something you can do with older children, those who are already quite dexterous and able to sit down for long periods. If you think the process may be too tedious for the kiddos, set up the cardboard-and-pin guides beforehand and immediately engage them in looping the twine.
Use these twine flowers as gift or loot bag toppers, greeting card accents, scrapbook embellishments, and party decor. Make several to form wreaths, table arrangements, and wall art. The possibilities are endless!

Materials you will need :
Twine (jute or cotton)
Cardboard (you can also use old boxes, illustration board, Styrofoam, etc.)
Multicolor pins
Scissors
Ruler
Pencil
Craft needle
Glue
String (you can also use ribbon, cord, a strip of fabric, etc.)

Cute DIY Outfits for Ballet Class

Since we’re such DIY and crafting enthusiasts, however, you can bet that we take ballet class as an opportunity to get creative in other ways too, putting our fabric working and sewing skills to good use to make ourselves and our kids adorable outfits and accessories for ballet class whenever we can. Of course, we know you shouldn’t wear anything that hampers our movement or interferes with our dancing, but we don’t see any reason not to look cute while we move as well, even if we’re a little sweaty by the end!

Do you love the idea of making your own clothes for ballet class just as much as we did but you feel like you could use a little bit of inspiration and guidance while you go about it? Then check out these 15 awesome tutorials, designs, and ideas that will help you get started!

1. DIY chiffon wrap skirt

VIEW IN GALLERY

Have you long admired the silhouette created by the classic wrap style ballet skirt and wanted to wear one in your own classes as well, but you can’t help wishing you could get one in more interesting colours than the solid black or ballet pink ones you always see in stores and photos? Well, whenever we experience that in basically any context, we realize that our crafting skills are what will save the day! That’s why we were so happy to follow along with this DIY chiffon wrap skirt tutorial featured on Spoon Flower. Ours is purple with butterflies!

2. Sewing slipper elastics

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps you’re not actually interested in making yourself extra accessories for dance class because you prefer that minimalistic sort of silhouette when you dance and you don’t want anything to hamper your movement, but you’re still looking for sewing tips for dance class because you’d like to learn how to sew the elastics on your ballet shoes properly by yourself? We learned that skill as teens and we also quickly learned, from experience, that there’s a very correct way to do it for maximum comfort. This awesome elastic sewing tutorial from Dave Tries Ballet lays it all our for you just right!

3. Elastic waist and ribbon tutu

VIEW IN GALLERY

Around this time of year, recital time is fast approaching and everyone in the dance class world is browsing costume ideas, choosing design details, and trying to finalize stage looks. We always find this really exciting for a number of reasons! We adore any type of costume design any time of year, but we also love that ballet recitals are such a great opportunity to practice making gorgeous costume pieces ourselves. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for different tut making tutorials! Last year we made our daughter a beautifully simple, romantic style tutu with an elastic waist that let her slip it on and off quickly to make changing between her multiple recital numbers as simple as possible. This tutorial from The Girl Inspired helped us a lot!

4. DIY pancake tutu

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you absolutely interested in making a tutu for yourself or your child but you’re just not sure that the draping romantic style is the shape you really want to go for? We love all shapes of tutus, but there’s definitely a nostalgic beauty to the classic straight style that some people often refer to as a “pancake tutu”. These might look a little more intimidating to make than the kind where the tulle simple drapes in whatever shape it pleases, but this tutorial from The Sorry Girls will help you along the way while you make your stiff, cheerful looking tutu.

5. Doll’s ballet outfit

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are your kids actually still a little bit too young for formal ballet class but you know they’re ready and raring to go because they already love dancing so much? Then perhaps making their favourite doll an awesome ballet outfit that looks just like the one they’d love to wear on stage someday will help keep them motivated and loving dance until they’re finally old enough to enter classes themselves! Blue Whimsy shows you how to make it happen.

6. Tips for rhinestoning simple dance costumes

VIEW IN GALLERY

Do you already have a dance costume ready to go but you find that you keep looking at it and thinking that something is missing? Well, whenever we think that, we usually find that rhinestones save the day! Rhinestoning a costume might sound simple, but there are certainly a few tips and tricks that will make the whole process quicker, neater, and easier! That’s why we love this tutorial from BDancewear.

7. Ballet inspired dress

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are your littlest kids completely obsessed with the idea of dancing ballet so you’ve put them in classes, but they keep asking you to help them look like a ballerina every other day of the week as well? Then perhaps a few ballet inspired dresses will keep them happy and let them feel their ballerina fantasy as they go about their day! Sure, you could probably find tutu-like dresses in stores, but if you make it yourself you can have them them pick the colours and they’ll be ten times happier with the final dress. We’d suggest following this adorable, straight forward pattern featured on It’s Always Autumn.

8. Classic tulle knotting and ribbon tutu

VIEW IN GALLERY

Whether you’re making it for a ballet recital outfit, casual Fridays in ballet class, or simply as a ballet inspired Halloween costume or fancy dress party, learning how to create a simple, classic knot tying tutu is a great skill! It sounds quite easy to do, and it really is, but that doesn’t mean you won’t need a little bit of guidance as you make it. Check out the helpful tips in this cute tulle and ribbon tutorial from DIY Network.

9. Long romantic style tutus

VIEW IN GALLERY

We’ve already shown you a beautiful tutorial that involves making a romantic style tutu, but what if the image you had in your mind for your recital number was more of a voluminous gown than a classic tutu? Well, creating a tutu as a first step is a great way to get that volume, but that doesn’t mean you can’t also make an overskirt to get yourself that gown aesthetic you want so badly! Natalie Danza guides you through the process of making the stunning silk version you see above.

10. Little DIY wrap skirts for kids

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you still thinking about how much you love the wrap skirt idea but you know your kids would love to wear one too? Well, if you’ve got experience sewing already then any tutorial will work for you and you can just adjust the measurements and steps to a smaller size, but we know that not everyone is prepared for that. That’s why we were so glad to find a tutorial that teaches you how to make a kids’ sized skirt specifically! Find out how it’s done in a surprisingly simple way on Elegantine.

11. Simple pinched practice leotard with sleeves

VIEW IN GALLERY

As much as we love making and designing our own tutus and costumes, we find that the thing we always need the most is regular practice leotards. We don’t like to repeat leotards without washing in between but washing and wearing takes a real toll on the fabric and wears bodysuits out easily. Constantly buying them, however, can get very expensive, which is why we learned how to make our own! Thanks to tutorials like this one from Hips and Kicks we now have a whole array of simple practice leotards in whatever colours we please, ready to grab before class no matter how much or little time we’ve had to do laundry that week.

12. Tie-dyed point shoes

VIEW IN GALLERY

If you’re going to create and design yourself a stunning recital or competition costume, are you intent on going all out and leaving no detail behind? Then we’d suggest thinking about how your dance shoes play into the overall look! Because pointe shoes are so expensive, we’re often inclined to leave them untouched and go with a simple, classic aesthetic in that regard, hoping their natural ballet pink will suit whatever outfit we choose just fine. Last year, however, we realized that our shoes were very worn and the year end recital would probably be their last hurrah, so we customized their colour with fabric die and incorporated them right into the look! Just in case you’re as intrigued by the idea of dying your pointe shoes (or other dance shoes) as we were, here’s an absolutely stunning looking tie dyed shoe tutorial from Little Mavericks.

13. Elastic waist lace skirt

VIEW IN GALLERY

Just because you’ll be performing in a full tulle and silk skirt on the night of the recital doesn’t mean you have to wear the full piece each and every time you practice the choreography or rehearse the number! Besides the fact that this might damage the skirt before show night, it’ll also make you hot. Of course, you should absolutely rehearse at least a few times with the full costume to make sure it works with all your movements but until that’s ready, try making yourself a pretty practice skirt that’s around the same lace but lighter to wear for long periods of time! We absolutely adore this simple DIY lace practice skirt outlined on Love Maegan.

14. Simple colourful circle skirt

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you very into the idea of making yourself a cute practice skirt but you just haven’t seen a kind that quite strikes your whole fancy yet, even though we’ve shown you a few different kinds? Then here’s one more for your consideration! We absolutely adore this flouncy short circle skirt and how cute it looks twirling when we dance, which is why we’ve made about seven of them. We also like how easy they are to slip on and off! Find the full instructions for making one of your own on Ballet Scoop.

15. Knitted stirrup leg warmers

VIEW IN GALLERY

It’s been all well and good for us to show you all these different ways to combine your love of dance with your DIY fabric working skills, but what if you’re not really a sewing enthusiast but you’re still determined to make yourself something useful for dance class? Well, if you have any skills in the yarn works department, then leg warmers are an amazing and totally useful project! We have actually knit ourselves several different colours in these fantastically simple leg warmers with stirrup feet that let you still grip the floor as you dance while you’re wearing them. Find the pattern on Lion Brand Yarn!

In short, we’re massive fans of bright, colorful birthday banners!

Sure, you can buy all kinds of cute birthday banners in stores, but we always find things more satisfying when we make them ourselves.

Then we’re pretty sure we’ve found just the birthday banner idea for you! Simply Real Moms suggests printing a photo from each month of the later year and making those into a banner that celebrates the way your child has grown. We think their train idea is totally adorable, but you could use this basic photo idea and display then in whatever design you please!

3. Mini standing pom pom banner

Then perhaps this smaller, cake topper sized banner would be the best idea for you! We love the way Mothers Niche made it from kebab sticks, string, crafting paper, and adorably colourful pom poms for flare.

4. Ribbon and felt letters milk jug banner

VIEW IN GALLERY

Did the idea of making a miniature birthday banner really appeal to you because you can perfectly picture your kids helping you make a smaller version a little bit easier, putting it where they think it’s best displayed, and proudly showing everyone at the party their work? Then here’s another idea that uses all kind of neat crafting supplies to keep them interested! A Bird and a Bean suggests using paper letters and a ribbon on kebab sticks or paper straws for the banner itself, propping it upwards in upcycled glass milk jars filled with crafting sand for stability.

5. Picture and party hats banner

Were you very pleased with the idea of using photos of your child as part of your birthday banner design but your favourite pictures are always the ones where they’re making the silliest faces?

We love the way In Colours cut out pictures of their baby’s expressions and put little birthday hats on each one, making a bunting that’s full of giggles and smiles.

VIEW IN GALLERY

Would you prefer to stick to simple letter and a bunting flag style banner because that’s the kind you always had as a kid and you just appreciate the basic aesthetic? Well, we can’t say we blame you because we love how customizable that base idea is, but just in case you’re still feeling in need of some guidance, here’s a clear, concise tutorial for making sparkly letters and patterned bunting flags on Simply Soiree.

8. Vintage inspired paper and metallic painted letters

VIEW IN GALLERY

We know that not everyone themes their parties specifically, but even if you’re not going with an overall theme, you can totally still have fun choosing a colour scheme and aesthetic for your party and décor! When we try to establish a particular atmosphere for any special occasion, we find a banner or bunting very helpful for driving it home. That’s why we loved this vintage inspired bunting flag idea from Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes so much! We can’t get over how well contrasted but also fitting them metallic painted letters are up against the old fashioned patterns of the bunting paper.

9. Snowflake banner for winter birthdays

VIEW IN GALLERY

All of these flowery, brightly coloured banner designs are all well and good, but what if the person you’re decorating for has a winter birthday and consequently adores snow and cold weather as a result? Well, we’re pretty sure if we had an extra reason to gather all out friends and celebrate together in the middle of winter, we’d be huge fans of the season too! We can’t get over how cute this snowflake birthday banner design from Titu 123 would look at a winter birthday party.

10. Pretty ribbon banner backdrop

Along with your birthday banner, were you actually hoping to cover the place with all kinds of cute banners, buntings, and hanging décor just to really spiff it up? Then here’s a great idea for not only making your walls look a little more cheerful, but also for giving guests a cute place to take whimsical party pictures against an adorable backdrop! Check out how Dear Lizzy used a simple length of string and some long strips of ribbon. You could also use cut strips of spare fabric in your favourite colours!

11. Sparkles and streamers banner

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps you already bought a cute birthday banner with sparkly lettering because you’ve never been great at neatly drawing or stenciling words, but you can’t help but feel like it’s just missing a touch of flare for your tastes? In that case, we thin you’re the perfect person to be giving this cute streamers idea a try. Check out how From Bare to Bold embellished their sparkly banner in an awesomely crafty, very celebratory looking way that’s surprisingly easy.

13. Lace doily letter background banner

We’ve talked a lot about colour, pattern, and sparkly, but what if your favourite thing to make décor pieces with, no matter how permanent or temporary they are, is actually texture? Well, whether it’s physical texture that you can feel or visual texture that just keeps the eye interested, we’re totally with you on that concept. That’s why we loved this paper lace doily banner idea from Let’s Make It Lovely so much! Check out how they placed a paper doily behind each letter to make sure it really pops out in a readable way, rather than getting lost in the pattern of the bunting flags.

14. Mini boxed birthday banner

Perhaps you’re not actually hosting a party at all but you still want to make a friend feel very appreciated and loved on their birthday, so you’re looking for a greeting with an extra bit of flare to include with the gift you got them? In that case, we have a feeling we’ve found the perfect bunting tutorial for you. Instead of walking into your home and finding their birthday greeting across the wall, they can open a little box and find their very own miniature bunting right there in their hand! Check out how easily this cute greeting can be made on Shelley Makes.

15. Burlap and clothespin banner

VIEW IN GALLERY

Have you actually carefully built up a more rustic chic aesthetic in your home because you and your family live a quiet country life and you always love the idea of extending that scheme into the party décor whenever you spiff the place up for special occasions? Then here’s a design and tutorial that’s absolutely perfect for you! We love the way See Vanessa Craft pasted a layer of cut burlap on each bunting flag underneath the letters, really making them pop but also reinforcing your rustic chic sense of style.
