Bunting is all the rage on the craft scene these days. At my old house, the kitchen was entirely beige, and being a fan of lots of color, I needed an easy, non-permanent way to add color and personality to the room. Living in Michigan, I had access to a variety of microbrews and all of the seasonal varieties therein. For awhile there, I was saving so many bottle caps and six pack boxes that they needed their own section of our laundry room. Here’s how I assuaged that problem in a few easy steps.
Lots and lots of six pack boxes (is there a term for these?)
Twine, yarn or string
Cut off the sides of the beer boxes with art on them. This involves cutting the left, right and bottom edges as well as the spines glued to the back of them, i.e. the perpendicular pieces of cardboard that create beer-sized compartments in your sixer. Repeat process on all beer boxes.
Punch a hole in the upper left and right corners of your cut-outs using a single-hole punch. Cut two-inch pieces of string to join your cardboard pieces. Tie each cardboard piece together as shown.
You can mount your banner in an archway or along the ceiling in a dull room like I did. This is a project that kids could honestly do, but you might want to try root beer boxes instead. :)
