I just love making up easy and cute banners for parties or even just for everyday! They are so fast to sew up and add such fun colors and style to any display, mantel or even to your backyard fence. Bandanas are so summery to me, so I thought it would be fun to make up a summery DIY bandana bunting – in these cheery, bright colors and all decorated with a little pom pom trim. Because everything is cuter with pom poms.
This DIY bandana bunting would be a great backdrop for a pool party or cookout too! It’s so quick to put together. Just cut up a few bandanas and sew them together with the trim. I think the whole thing could be done in a half hour.
So let’s get started!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY bandana bunting:
- 5 Bandanas – I used:
- 2.5 Yards of Pom Pom or Other Trim
- Ribbon for Ties
Begin by cutting a 9″ triangle out of one corner of the bandana.
Using this piece as a cutting guide, cut out three sections from each of your bandanas. I used the three corners that did not have the copywrite/writing on the corner. Press them into shape, you should have 15 folded pennant pieces when you are through.

Bev began sewing as a teenager and made her own clothes and room décor even then. That love for DIY, crafting, and sewing has grown to include jewelry making, furniture refinishing and anything else she can learn. Her style could probably be described best as a mix between modern and vintage – she loves taking old styles and making them new and fun again.
