DIY Vintage Bunting

Here is a great way to put that old bunting to some good use!!! Yes patriotic decor can be a little cheesy but with this quick and easy DIY project you can have a great vintage look piece of American decor.

1. It's best to use cotton or natural fabrics... make sure if it is new to wash it, but don't bother drying it because the fabric should be damp, if you don't need to wash the fabric then wet it and wring out the excess moisture.

2. In a large pot bring water to a boil. When water starts boiling, turn off stove and add one tea bag per cup of water. Use black tea for brown tones and herbal for red tones.

3. Add bunting to the pot and check fabric every 10 minutes until it has reached the desired color!

Final Product... A great vintage looking bunting!
