Mini photographic bunting

By twiceamummydoublethefun

The girls have enjoyed making this simple yet effective mini bunting which holds some of their favourite photos.  

To make this you will need:

  • Mini wooden craft pegs
  • Coloured wax cord
  • Coloured paint
  • A heart stencil
  • Photographs

Isabelle and Scarlett started off painting the mini pegs with the different colours. 

They had great fun and began mixing the paints together to see what colours they could make.

Once the pegs have dried completely thread the coloured cord you would like to use into the little holes of the pegs so they are secure.

You can use any length cord for your bunting.

Isabelle choose pink and Scarlett choose the blue.

Isabelle and Scalett picked some of their favourite photos which I began to cut into a heart shape using our stencil. 

I made sure the photos would fit nicely into a shape of the heart.

If you didn’t want heart shapes maybe print off some smaller photos to use.

The girls pegged their photos onto the bunting.

We now have a beautiful mini photographic bunting to display proudly in our home.

    Ahhh this is a fantastic idea. And so creative. I love pastel colors and those pegs you could color and sell them they are so awesome. Just thinking how I could paint some pegs peach for missy moo’s first birthday party and do something similar to hang up of her. Thanks for linking up to Share WIth Me with this awesome idea. Got my creative ideas flowing now. I love it. #sharewithme

      Thank Jenny:) I managed to buy a pack of the mini pegs and the coloured cord from the works at 99p. You will have to show me if you do go ahead. I think something like this will look fab at her first birthday xx

        Oh definitely. I always share what I do for parties each detail. I will be doing a huge run of planning MM’s 1st birthday series and if I do it will give credit where credit is due. lol

    What a gorgeous creation! And just what I need to use my mini-pegs for! I never thought to paint them either, but they look really lovely.

    such a cool idea! This is great as you can change the pics, or add some art work. I’ve a string off little pegs left over from hanging xmas cards.
