Fold Triangle Corners

Lay a triangle pretty-side down on your work surface. Fold the two corners into the middle so they just barely overlap.

Flip the bandana back over, fold the new outer ends in towards the middle until they touch each other. Pin the folds into place.

Place Ribbon and Pin

If you’re using ribbon, place each folded piece of bandana fabric across half of the ribbon’s height and then fold the ribbon over the bandana and pin in place. If using or bias tape, tuck the bandana into the tape’s fold and pin in place. Arrange the rest of the folded bandanas in a nice pattern across the ribbon.

Step 6

Stitch Together

Sew down the entire length of the ribbon, even in between the bandanas to keep a straight line (Image 1). Whether a permanent decoration or party accent, a strand of upcycled bandana bunting is sure to give your room some festive flair (Image 2).
