Maritime Signal Flag Bunting & Free Printable

Craftiments.com:  Free Printable Maritime Signal Flag Bunting

I loved the idea of a maritime signal flag bunting on the mirror above my beachy summer mantel, but the bright primary colors just did not work with my decor.  So I redesigned the flags with a palette of blue and green seaside shades.

If you would like to make your own signal flag bunting, you can download the free printable below.  This printable is for personal use only.  There are twelve flags which will be 3" square when assembled.

The bunting is very simple to make.  Print and cut out your flags.  I printed mine on ivory resume paper with a cross weave pattern.  Fold the flags along the center line and apply glue to the inside.  I like to use rubber cement so the paper doesn't get wrinkly.  Finally, sandwich a string in between and press the two sides together.  


Hang up your bunting and enjoy!
