I’ll admit it – I’m not a big fan of tinsel (or at least I wasn’t, until I fell in love with this DIY Christmas Bunting Tutorial!)

I know, I know, it’s jolly and Christmassy and tackiness doesn’t really count during the festive season, right? And yet, I never can seem to talk myself into hanging it on my tree, mantelpiece or anywhere around my home for that matter.

So when I saw a string of dark green tinsel in Tiger and thought, yeah, I could work with that, I was a little taken aback. “Tinsel? Really? I’ve lost my mind already and we’re not even halfway through December.”

I found comfort in the knowledge that this wasn’t going to be just any kind of tinsel. I planned to completely transform it into the least-tinsel like bit of tinsel you’ve ever seen.

I don’t know about you, but I’d say I did a pretty good job. Complete with acorns, berries, mushrooms, and even some teeny tiny fairy lights, my Tiger tinsel bunting is unlike any other.

I’ve always thought less is more with Christmas. You don’t need to cover the whole house in decor as long as you have a few standout pieces – this is definitely one of them. It looks classy, cosy, and just screams screams screams, ‘it’s CHRISTMAAS!!’

Want to make your own? It’s much easier (and cheaper) than you’d think.
