To create the wooden bunting you will need:

  • Balsa Wood (any size will do but I used the size in the photo, find it at craft stores like Joann’s and Michael’s)
  • Craft paint
  • Baker’s twine
  • Washi Tape

To start I cut out the pendants. Using a pencil, I measure four inches down the length of the balsa wood. Then I used a ruler to draw the pendants to a point. Flip flop down the wood cutting out five or more pendants. I cut my pendants using my larger paper cutter, but scissors or a craft knife would work too. This was the easiest way for me to cut the pendants.

Tape off stripes using washi tape. I just eyeballed mine, but you could use a ruler to be exact.
