Start by cutting triangles out of thin wood. We used some scrap shipping wood that came as packaging with a piece of furniture. You can buy wood triangles in craft shops, if you struggle to find a piece that works well. You'll need about 12 triangles to be able to write a nice long message.
Paint your triangles with a coat of chalkboard paint and leave to dry.
Paint with a second coat of paint and leave to dry again.
Punch a hole at either side of the top of the triangle. My wood was thin enough to use a hole punch.
Loop some string through the hole.
Secure at the back with a knot and then string through the second hole, securing with another knot.
Leave a small length of string between each triangle and continue threading them all on to the string.
Now the fun part. Write on your bunting with chalk. I used a ruler to give mine a neat outline, but you can decorate yours however you like!
And you’re done! Hang up and admire your handy work!
