Project Description

Let's have some fun creating some hand painted paper bunting. I'm going to show you three different design ideas to start you off but feel free to get creative! 

SUPPLIES

  • Pencil
  • Watercolor paints 
  • Brushes
  • Watercolor paper
  • Ribbon or decorative string
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch

RESOURCES

If you want a little inspiration please find two "Floral Examples" pages of my own watercolor flowers and leaf shapes at the top right of this page. :) If you would like more details on how to paint the floral shapes you can also have a look at my previous class: "Watercolor Fun - Paint a Floral Wreath with Birds" 

STEP 1:

In the first step we will look at the materials you will need to gather to make your handmade bunting.

STEP 2 :

In this section we will be looking at how to choose a palette personal to you. We will be considering why we might restrict our palette to a few colors and the benefits of this. We'll search out resources for palette ideas. 

STEP 3:

Templates at the ready  - cutting out your bunting shapes. Templates can be found at the top right of this page :)

STEP 4:

Painting! We'll be looking at floral shapes, stripes and spots.  

STEP 5:

Hang your bunting! Don't forget to share your finished work in the project gallery if you'd like some feedback from fellow students or myself :) It would be lovely to see your bunting in hanging in situ and any close ups of your designs. This is seriously my favorite part and honestly it's the reason I teach on Skillshare. It's so exciting to see what you all create.

Happy painting!!

  • Any close-ups of your floral designs.
  • ...and anything else you wish to share!
