Since I live in a small townhouse, my goal is to make the two patios as much a part of the home as the inside is. This not only gives my home some welcoming character, but it also gives me more space in which to flex my creative muscles.
I’ve got a long way to go, but I’m adding little touches of happiness here and there as my budget allows. Most days my dreams are much bigger than my budget, so when I can find a little touch of whimsy that costs me nothing, it energizes me to keep going with our Dave Ramsey-fied way of life.
As far as I’m concerned, a bunting adds immediate happiness to any space where it hangs. This bunting features a fairly weatherproof fabric for the pennants since it’s hanging outside – I used a simple fabric-backed plastic tablecloth – although mine is in a rather protected area, so that should help with its durability as well.
Today’s project was made from supplies I already had on hand, and took about a half hour from start to finish. If you don’t have the supplies already, it will probably cost you around $5-10, and you’ll have lots of tablecloth fabric left for other projects (maybe some outdoor pillows or placemats?).
