Royal Wedding bunting


This bunting was entirely hand made for a tea party on the occasion of the British Royal Wedding. I started the task while my other contribution - a traditional Victoria Sponge - was in the oven, spreading its lovely smell through the house. Since the bunting was going to decorate a wall I recycled the back side of old computer print outs for the flags and used new paper only for the rings - in fear of the print shining through. Painting all of them it took me quite a bit longer than making the sponge! However I decided not to involve the computer to speed things up as I enjoyed the "Victorian farm" feeling of making everything from scratch. To add sparkle, I placed some of my rarely used golden sequins at the center of the letters.
