DIY Tailgating Bunting

tailgateweek

 

I love LOVE love football.  And I love decorating and crafting…. sooooo it should not be surprising that I crafted up my own team spirited Maze and Blue (ohhh yayyyy I am a HUGE University of Michigan fan) tailgate that I will be sharing with you this week!

So, Day 1 of Tailgating the Crafty Way—-starts with DIY team spirited bunting!

DIY Tailgate Bunting from CraftyScrappyHappy.net

I love what the great punch of team colors that bunting can add to a tailgating look!!!  I might just be making more and more version of this of bunting banners, I love the look!  I have to admit, I have never made bunting before mainly because of the sewing.  What in the world was I waiting on, it wasn’t bad at all!?!?  I know there are tutorials and “how to” posts over the blog world… but in true “Jaime” fashion I didn’t check out tutorials I just kind of came up with my own methods….

I ended up finding this cute maze colored chevron fabric at Hobby Lobby and couldn’t find a blue fabric that I was crazy about…. so, I grabbed my husbands old dress shirt that no longer fits him {I wouldn’t just steal a good dress shirt for crafting…. well maybeeee I would… hehe}.  Did I mention I like to reused everything and everything?!

I just cut up strips of the blue fabric and two triangles joined in the middle.

And I sewed one straight line right on the top to hold each triangle section in place. And that is it, nice and simple and festive all at the same time!

Need to know how to make craft products that stand out from the crowd?
