Crieff is set to make as much bunting as it possibly can!

A few people were dismayed by the lack of bunting during last Games Week. This has inspired local artist June McEwan to formulate the Great Bunting Project, to cover Crieff with bunting specially created by community groups in the area.

Personalisation

We added the name of our group to our bunting by drawing out letters onto plain calico fabric, and patterned them using fabric pens.

Fabric and permanent markers are ideal for jazzing up plain fabric

Adding glue to the back of a letter

We simply used Bostik Glue spread right to the edge of our letters to stick our letters onto our bunting triangles

Added extras could be tassles, buttons, sequins or glitter! Whatever takes your fancy.
