You know that moment when you wake up and realize that the holiday you wanted to celebrate is – TODAY! So, you pack the kids in the car and head to your nearest big box store because, despite living in a city with thousands of other holiday revelers, there must be at least one thing left on the shelves.
You get to the store and not only can you not find a thing in that holiday theme, but when you ask a sales associate they smile and inform you that they haven’t had those items in stock for… wait for it… weeks. Which means the rest of the world (probably without kids) snatched up all of the holiday decorations before you could even remember it was that holiday. Every. Single. Time.
Although these might just be my mommyhood problems and they could easily be solved with some planning ahead, I thought I would share our new Free Printable Fiesta Bunting today. Just in case this happened to you this morning.
I know that this fiesta bunting would have been more helpful before Cinco de Mayo, but hopefully we saved you a trip to the store if you still wanted to have a decoration or two up for your big taco night tonight.
Our Free Printable Fiesta Bunting features a fun colorful stripe, bold type and a cactus or two. It’s sure to help you get in the mood to celebrate. Even if it just means that you will make tacos for dinner.
New to making DIY buntings? They are really simple to make – promise. You can check out the step by step photo directions on our bunting tutorial here.
What Materials Do I Need to Make a Fiesta Bunting?
Like other crafts, when making any printable design, it’s important to grab all of your materials first. For making a bunting, you will need the printed design, twine or string and clear tape. I like using baker’s twine to hang the bunting pieces on, but you can really use any hanging material you like.
How to Make your Fiesta Bunting
After you’ve printed your design, cut out each piece of the bunting using a paper trimmer (affiliate) for clean edge cuts. You can also use sharp scissors.
I measured out a piece of bright green baker’s twine and taped it onto the back. The key is to remember to spell your words backwards. So for “fiesta”, start with the “A” and not the “F” or it will spell “ATSEIF” instead of “FIESTA”.
