How to Make a Thanksgiving Bunting With Tombow
Hi friends, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft. This year has been the most unusual year I’ve experienced. Not just on a global scale, but personally too. This time of year is the perfect time to take a deep breath and give thanks. Thanksgiving will look different this year. We’ve decided to just have a meal with our kids and not travel. It will be a little more isolated, but I want to make it fun and still memorable. Make a darling bunting banner for the perfect Thanksgiving decoration using a few Tombow supplies.
This cute bunting banner can hang on the wall or be used as a pie topper by tying the twine to some skewers or paper straws, similar to this banner.
Supplies Needed for Thanksgiving Bunting:
- Cardstock (white, hot pink, teal and polka dots)
- Tombow Dual Brush Pen
- Tombow MONO Drawing Pen
- Bakers twine
- Tombow Foam Tape
- Tombow MONO Adhesive + Permanent
- Scissors/paper cutter
Step 1: Cut Paper
Begin by choosing the word you want on your banner. I picked THANKS! Then, I cut the polka dot paper into eight equal pieces. I only needed six of the pieces, but this 1/8 page size is perfect for small buntings.
Then, use the scissors to cut a notch out of the bottom of the papers.
Step 2: Lettering
Now use the Dual Brush Pen and write your word on the white cardstock. Space out each letter so they can be cut apart easily. Experiment with capital/lowercase letters and a variety of fonts. Check out this great post on lettering in different fonts.
Step 3: Assembling Bunting
Now cut the letters apart. Can you tell what my favorite letter in the alphabet is? It’s N, just like my name.
Layer the letters on the colored paper using the MONO Adhesive+ Permanent.
Add any desired details. Then, attach the letters to the bunting flags using the foam tape.
Step 4: Attach to Twine
Now, use the stapler to attach the buntings to the twine.
Now, this darling bunting is ready to hang on the wall or tied to skewers and put right into the pie for the perfect holiday decoration. Add a fun activity by having the family write what they are thankful for on the back of the buntings.
How will you be making your Thanksgiving special this year?
