How to DIY Paper Plate Bunting in 4 easy steps

Wanting to add something extra to your party? Have some leftover paper plates you aren't sure what to do with?

Fabulous! No really, because I am going to show you how to create your own bunting using left over paper plates in less than 5 steps!

I also have posted a video of 'How to DIY your Paper Plate Bunting' here, just in case you need an extra hand.

Right let's get started!


  • Paper Plates Here I am using the Pink and Pink and Peach, which are sold in our party packs or individually.
  • Pencil and Ruler
  • Ribbon or String - Try to use one in a similar colour or tone. Or you may want to use baker's twine.
  • Hole Puncher
  • Scissors - Make sure they are sharp.



Line up the angle's tips and lightly rule your guide lines. Repeat for all plates. It will look like this:


Using the guides you have drawn, cut your bunting. You may want to start by cutting half the plate and then the smaller wedges. 


Once you have your pieces of bunting, use the hole puncher to make 2 hole at the top. 


Once all your hole are made, you can arrange the pieces as you like. I have decided on 1 Large, 1 small.


Thread your ribbon or string through the holes. It is up to you if you want to start from the front of the bunting and thread it out the back, or vice versa. I have alternated the treading so you make the most of the smaller bunting details.

Than hang it up somewhere people can admire you 'bespoke' bunting! Done!

Let me know how you go with yours, or send me a pic on instagram, I love seeing your own creations.
