We love a nice bit of rainbow bunting in our house…. oh, and a sewing machine. One that works anyway….(frowns in the direction of redtedart)
So I had this idea to make some colourful paper bunting with some left over paper triangles (don’t ask, I can’t bear to throw ANY scrap of paper away – even if it IS destined for the recycling!) And rainbow bunting sprung to mind… Avoiding the typical rotation of the triangles, we went with sewing down the MIDDLE of the triangle – and there you have it!
This is perfect for 17th March – St Patrick’s Day in our neck of the woods – if you fancy a #StPaddys party – would be a great decoration!
So what’s this hashtag? #GetYourCraftOn I hear you ask? Well St Patrick’s Day is looming – and we want to see you ‘get your craft on’ 🙂
I’m fairly new to Instagram – and I’m loving it, so I have teamed up with fellow writers Red Ted Art, Me and My Shadow, Zing Zing Tree and Domesticgoddesque to share some insta-fun, and find new instagram accounts to be amazed by with this ‘get your craft on’ project. Kelly recently got the #getyourcrafton ball rolling with the #Hearts themed #GetYourCraftOn (click here: Domesticgoddesque.com to see all of the amazing posts on her linky…)
So – every month there will be a craft challenge on a theme, and now it’s my turn to be the host… you’ll have two weeks to get involved. Share your photos on Instagram, or over on Twitter, using the hashtag #GetYourCraftOn, add your link to the linky below, and we’ll pick the best ones to feature here on the host blog the following month. (and on our Pinterest board too) So when Domesticgoddesque.com has picked her faves we’ll update the link!
The photos you share do not have to be of the finished article – let’s see your work in progress as well as your completed masterpieces! (here’s my rainbow bunting!) Anything related to the #StPaddys topic. Just tag them with #GetYourCraftOn and follow and tag us too if you’d like to! Our team’s five Instagram accounts are:
