Pet Wire Bunting

I love to make some kind of bunting for every special occasion or holiday time. It's pretty, it's effective and you can save it, to string up again the following year.

Last year we made brightly coloured hand and foot print family bunting which I packed, as we are in Bournemouth at our family place in Southbourne, so this year I made some wire bunting to stay up across the fireplace.

I wanted to use chicken wire but the only place locally I could find it sold it in lengths of 20m! So this mesh pet guard was perfect! You can buy it in a sheet for under £5 and it would make at least 5m worth of bunting! I made a shorter piece and have kept the leftover wire for another project.

Cut the mesh wire with normal kitchen scissors into rectangles. Mine were approximately 20cm wide by 40cm long. Take a paper doily and a string or ribbon embellishment (mine were on offer in The Range 2 for £1). Thread the ribbon or string through the top of the doily and tie to the wire. Pass ribbon through to hang and you are done!

We have a busy Easter Monday today before we drive home to Weston super Mare. This morning I have found Molly's Den, a 16,000 sq ft warehouse full of vintage sellers complete with a children's play area, and this afternoon we will stop in at Moors Valley, a wonderful Country Park and Forest.

I hope you have had a lovely Easter break!
