    1. Use the paint to paint 12 mini clothes pins. Leave them clipped to the piece of card board they came with so you can easily paint them. Set aside to dry completely.
    2. Measure your space to display your bunting. Add 8″ to the measurement, about 4″ on each end for the knot/hanging.
    3. Use a piece of paper to cut a 6″ x 9″ triangle template. Fold the paper in half, lengthwise, and cut a triangle. Open the paper to reveal the pattern.
    4. Fold your fabric in half and lay the short end of the triangle along the fold. Cut the triangle out of the fabric, keeping the fold along the top. Repeat until you have 6 triangles cut.
    5. Find the center of your ribbon, by folding in half and marking lightly with a pencil. Place 3 triangles on each side of your center mark, about 1″ apart. Tack the triangles onto the ribbon using hot glue. Secure the triangles together by gluing all the way around the triangle.
    6. Attach the burlap letters to the triangle with hot glue.
    7. Cut 12, 6″ pieces of cream ribbon. Tie 6 pieces of ribbon onto each end of the bunting.

Hang the bunting by tying a slip knot in each end of the ribbon. Attach the clothes pins (They are just for looks, they won't hold up the banner because the letters are too heavy).
