Playroom Book Bunting

I’ve been trying to come up with a playroom decoration using our book dust jackets. They are so cute & colorful, I thought about framing them, but I think this turned out better! And it was nearly free. That is always a plus 🙂

Supplies:

  • Dust jackets (I used 12. You could just use from 6 books if you cut a triangle out of the back too, or more or less depending on how long you want your bunting to be.)
  • String
  • Packaging tape (we had a bunch left from our move, glue or other tape could work too.)
  • Triangle template (I cut mine out of a Pink shopping bag.)

Trace your triangles. Be sure to leave about half an inch to fold over & tape to the string (don’t want to cut off someone’s head 😉

Cut them out.

Adhere to string.

All done! I got some jumbo thumb tacks from Target to hang ours.
