"Today, "bunting" is a term for any festive decorations made of fabric, or of plasticpaper or even cardboard in imitation of fabric. Typical forms of bunting are strings of colorful triangular flags and lengths of fabric in the colors of national flags gathered and draped into swags or pleated into fan shapes."   source: wikipedia

Did you know that these type things were called a "bunting"? 
I didn't until I volunteered to make the bunting for our talent show (fundraiser/auction social) at church this past month.

freezer paper cut (by hand/knife thing) ironed onto fabric triangles (table covered with wax paper)

painted black fabric paint, then glitter fabric paint

freezer paper peeled off when paint was dry

sewed triangle back to letter-front along bottom edges, flipped, and pressed

inserted top of triangles into double fold wide bias tape (black) - 1 package

I pinned it before I sewed it in to be sure it would all fit along the 3 yards that came in the package

Didn't it turn out well?
