I was making a himmeli last week and had a ton of pink and coral straws leftover and suddenly I realized I could string up a bunch of triangles and have a new kind of bunting! I love that it's got negative space, is three dimensional, and won't get easily ruined in storage or if used outdoors.
1. Decide how long you want your bunting to be and multiply by three to get your twine length. I used pink twine from Lowe's but you could also use embroidery thread or really thin rope. You just need something thin enough for two pieces to fit through a straw. You'll also need three straws for each triangle. I used 6" coral straws for the bottoms and 4.5" pink straws for the tops. I placed my pink straw on first and then two coral straws and pushed them to the left end. 2. Then I bent my straws around to arrange a triangle shape. 3. Take your long end and string it back through the top straw as shown. 4. Add your next triangle in the same order of size/color and restring that long end through the top to get your next triangle. Continue until you're out of room.
I hung mine up with glittered tape from the Martha Stewart line and cut little triangles into the ends. I found my straws at Target but you can find darling striped and spotted ones on Etsy or large party stores. Spray painting is always an option if you can't find the perfect shade of mint!
Now, go make some bunting.
