Ruff Draft: Fabric Strip Bunting from Ricki’s Glamping Party!

Did you all have a chance to see Ricki’s Glamping Party from yesterday’s post?  If not, take a few minutes and check it out – this party is one of our favorites that we had the honor of producing this year!!!

The amazing Becca Bond was responsible for capturing every beautiful detail!

You may have noticed (if you have been following this party) the fabric strip bunting we displayed on the backdrop and front table – today, we will show you how we made it!!!

This is such a simple, yet impactful way to dress up any table!   It coordinates perfectly with our Glam Camping  Printable Collection!

Supplies needed:


Woven Fabric



1. First measure your fabric to desired length – we used 8 1/2″ long pieces  (width can be any size – depends on how many strips you want in that fabric)

cut fabric

2. Next you need to make your strips.  Using scissors, snip into fabric about 1″ from edge (I start my cutting point about 1″ deep as well)

3. Once cut has been started, rip the fabric into a strip – this is quick movement using both hands and a decent amount of force.  Woven fabric will rip in a straight line.

4. Leave frayed edges… we like the torn look, it adds interest!

5. Next cut a piece of twine to length needed for banner

6. Last tie fabric strip to twine (repeat with multiple strips of fabric – mix & match colors and patterns!!!)

Simple, colorful and perfect for any scrap fabric you have laying around the house!

This Fabric bunting can be mixed in with our mini-pennants found in the Glam Camping  Printable Collection – or mix it with a DIY Pom Banner, instructions found here on the Ruff Draft.

  1. I have a darling line of tween jewelry. I also do alot of custom designs. I would love to see if it is something you might be interested in for possible party favors? If you look at my group on facebook Amy Catherine Designs you can see how cute it is. They are all double sided and have two different designs. Pricing is great also. I liked your faebook page and you can take a look at mine. Cant wait to hear from you. Amy
