$3 Snowflake Bunting

Today, I am excited to report that my recent entertaining articles at SheKnows.com are finally live on the site! Here are the links:

I've been anxiously waiting to share them with you, especially since I've mentioned some behind-the-scenes projects that went into creating the finished look.  In case you missed them, check out my artsy Santa figurines, and the 15-minute ornament backdrop.  Today, I've got another holiday decorating idea for you that only costs $3 -- DIY paper snowflake bunting to hang around your home!

To get started with this easy project, first you'll need to pick up one of these paper shapes packets from Michaels.  I bought the 24-pack of snowflakes, but they also had snowmen (which could be super cute too).  Each pack costs about $3.

Once you have your snowflakes, use a hole-punch to make a hole on at the top of each snowflake ...

Once you have your holes punched, just run some ribbon through -- and that's it!  I already had this ribbon on hand from a few Christmas seasons back, but if you did need to buy some I would recommend the $1 section at Michaels (always near the register at my store).  That way, your bunting would still cost less than $5, and your home will be decked out for the holidays!

To hang the bunting, I just used tape ... but you could also drape each end from your curtain rods.  I like the way bunting looks when draped in front of a window, and hanging the strands from the curtain rods will make your bunting look like a part of your window treatment.

With the extra snowflakes in the pack, I used tape to stick them to my wall in a cascading pattern.  Such a simple way to give your home a seasonal uplift, don't you think?
