INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Using transfer paper and ruler, transfer template to 1/2" plywood (shown: 31 triangles). Cut out shapes. This will create (approximately) a 6' and 7' banner. Cut less shapes for desired length.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint triangles as desired (shown: Azaela, Geranium Red, Marigold, Citrus Green, Blue Bahama, Petunia Purple, Summer Sky Blue, and Fiesta Yellow). Once Dried, sand edges smooth.
    Step 1 Example
  3. If desired, use a stencil to apply lettering in a coordinating color. Once paint has dried, sand if desired.
  4. Apply clear coat to front, back, and sides of bunting for added durability.
  5. Drill 1/8" holes at both corners for rope. Be sure to remove any splinters from holes.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Using a large embroidery needle, thread the jute rope through the drilled holes. Allow several feet extra at each end to use to tie up.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Hang in desired location and enjoy!
