Today I am sharing with you India Bunting, a Kids Patriotic Craft to create a cheap, yet festive decoration for the upcoming India Independence Day holiday on 15th August.
To make this you will need:
- round coffee filters
- Saffron(Orange) and green dot Markers
- glue stick
- ribbon, yarn or string
- newspaper to protect your table
Next, add the Saffron(orange). We alternated the designs, making the bulls' eye green on some with saffron borders, and vice versa. Putti loved decorating these.
Here's a video of my little crafter talking about the colors of the India flag!
She made a few, different from the bulls eye pattern, she started with. Here's some of the filters she had colored. They do go pretty fast!!
Once dry, open the filters and get your glue stick and string. Put some glue in the center and all over half of the filter, then lay the string in the middle, making sure to leave around some string at one end, for hanging. Fold it over, press and then add your next filter in the same way.
Keep adding filters until you are all done. Once you've finished, display your bunting wherever you'd like- Mantle, Door, Window, Patio!!
Enjoy and have fun! This bunting was inspired by Katydid and Kid's Post.
