DIY Bunting

I made this bunting for an event I did and I thought I'd share it with you because it's such a quick and easy DIY that barely costs anything plus it looks great! 

What You'll Need:
- Crepe Paper (I used 2 sheets you can use as many as you wish depending on the desired length)
- Scissors
- Stapler
- Twine

Hopefully the pictures are pretty self explanatory but I'll just quickly run down the steps if you're not too sure:

1. Completely roll out your crepe paper and lay it out flat
2. Start folding it over (approx. width of an A4 sheet)
3. Put your finger into the center of all the folds
 4. Cut along both sides so you should end up with multiple individual sheets.
 5. Start cutting approx. 3cm strips from both sides leaving a 10 cm gap in the center. 
6. Carefully pull apart one sheet from the stack and grab it from the center
7. Start twisting to the point where your strips start. 
8. Twist the center into a loop and staple it. 
9. Do the steps 1-8 with 1 or more other colours
10. Lay out your bunting in the arrangement you want
11/12. Grab your twine and start stringing it through each loop.

And voila! A perfect bunting in seconds. It barely costs $5 and looks great at any event.
