It adds colour and is also a quick and easy way to create a celebratory and convivial atmosphere. Don’t panic if you can’t sew. Bunting can be made with paper, ribbon and staples, or ask around, there could be a local budding seamstress that could lend a hand.
Your bunting doesn’t have to be made of cloth. One community business even made carrot bunting to attract customers into their shop. Run a community leisure centre? How about some swimming trunk bunting? Run a community bus service? How about bunting made from old bus tickets? Get creative!
