Step 8: Black Felt Bunting


Cut the black felt in big bunting pieces. Make them 12 inches wide and 16 inches tall cut to a point in the center.

Step 10: Grommets and Sticks


Use the grommet tool kit to set a grommet on each top corner of the buntings. 

You can also just punch a hole and it shouldn't fray because it's felt.

Then hot glue flat tongue depressor craft sticks across the top of the buntings so they will stay stiff and not sag when hung.
