2 Easy Buntings for Your Fall Decorating

We don't have a lot of decorations for Thanksgiving, but we do have a few. I also made a few new ones, I made two different buntings from items I already had around the house.  They are both very easy to put together. Easy is good, right?
This is what our mantel looks like right now. Very minimal huh? I like it!  I even kept the little 2x4 pumpkin out that I showed you how to make HERE.
First is the Folded Bookpage Bunting.  So easy a kid can do it!  Remember when you were a little girl and you folded notebook paper into a fan? Same technique here, just use old book pages. 
I folded each book page in half  long ways and then folded them in half again at a slight angle, punched a hole in the bend and then strung them on a long piece of jute twine.  There are 12 single pages in the center of the bunting and then the two "fans" on the end are four pages together.  I made a loop in the jute on each end for hanging.
Now for the Natural Pinecone Bunting.  Even easier, well if you have a sweet honey to help you like I do!  Thank you Baby!
You'll need something to hang your pinecones on the twine.  We used some heavy wire and my honey bent them by hand (with pliers) into little hooks for me.  I tried, but I'm too weak! LOL!
Next, drop a dollop of hot glue on the bottom of the pinecone and add your hook.
Now its ready for hanging on a long length of jute twine.
I hung the big pinecones on the outside and little ones on the inside, but that's how I roll! :)
If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen this picture.  My little photo bomber Sarah!
And speaking of photo bombers...meet Zel!  He's the sweetest boy EVER!  I really love the simple decor our little fire place is sporting right now. You know.....its almost time to break out the Christmas goodies!

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
