This DIY rag bunting tutorial is easy and inexpensive.  The bunting makes adorable decor for any nursery or kids space!

As I’ve mentioned before, my sisters are both pretty creative. My younger sister recently made a rag bunting for my niece’s room. It’s adorable and easy!

Here are the supplies you need:

(1) Gather up your fabric – my sister actually picked up old sheets at thrift stores and garage sales for her bunting. It was inexpensive, and the sheets are easy to tear.

(2) Next, you need to tear the fabric. You can cut notches at the top of the fabric – I would suggest 3-4 inches wide. The notches help get the tearing going.

(3) Once you have your fabric strips, cut them the length you prefer. I would keep them somewhat similar in length, but they do not need to be perfect.

(4) Start tying. Figure out how long of a bunting you want, and you just fill the rope up with your fabric ties. You can make it as full (or sparse) as you like.
