We’re always on the lookout for fresh nursery decorating ideas and we have jumped on the bandwagon for bunting! One of the cutests ways to add whimsy and colour to a room, it’s simple to make, and easily customizable into any size, length or theme colour that you can imagine (Easy no-sew instructions here). Not up for DYI? Etsy offers some great options in paper and fabric.
Etsey, The Spotted Barn. Fun, bold and graphic.
Etsey, The Spotted Barn. Pretty vintage prints.
Etsy, All The Trimmings. A nautical theme for that little sailor.
So what are some ways to use them? Well, pretty much anywhere in a room, strung up high on a ceiling or wall. Our recommendation is to take care not to hang anything directly on the crib or furniture, and keep away from any place that is too close to where a child can pull the decoration down, whether in a crib or while crawling around in the room. Just like any decoration or accessory in a nursery, make sure to secure them properly so that it will not fall. Here are a few examples of inspirational places and spaces using bunting (Sources for images below can be found on my Nursery Pinterest board).
