Dot Bunting Tutorial

All of our closets in our upstairs don't have closet doors. I'm not really sure why, because it looks like there used to be hinges on the molding. Right now, replacing doors is not on the top of the priority list when it comes to house renovations so I thought I would like to at least dress up Juliet's closet area a little bit.




This dot bunting is a great option! It's cheap, it's easy, and I think it really adds something to the room. Plus, you could make it for so many things. I'm planning on making a few more for Juliet's birthday and for the holidays.  There's so many great ways to use it. 

Materials Needed: 
Scrapbook paper or card stock of choice
Circle punch (I used 1'') 
Thread


1. Punch the holes from the scrapbook paper. 

2. Thread sewing machine with desired color of thread. Place circle directly under foot of sewing machine and sew through the middle. 

3. Place next circle just as the first circle is clearing the back of the foot. Continue doing this for as long as you would like your bunting. 

4. Hang and enjoy!


Seriously this is one of the easiest ways to add some whimsy to a room. If you will be hanging straight down, I would recommend doubling the circles so if it spins you will have color on both sides. Or you could use colored card stock.

    1. That's a great idea! You could change it up for the holidays and stuff, too, since this is so simple. I would love to see how it turns out :)

  3. Interesting, i know nothing about seeing machines and definitely didtnt know that you could see through card stock or paper for that matter. The result is cute. I read your bio on Tiffs Tour Through Blogland page and had to check your blog out. I am a mom of 4 so I know how the need for 2 or more cups of coffee are needed daily. God bless! Please stop by sometime. Rachel xo

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I never had really thought about it, either. honestly. I forget when I saw this on Pinterest, but I knew I really wanted to try it and it was so much simpler than I thought it would be. I'm definitely not a seamstress by any means!
