Felt Pizza Bunting

I'm frantically getting ready for my boys pizza party themed birthday on Saturday! Nothing like some last minute crafting, right? If you saw my Play Food Felt Pizza post, you will probably recognize these fun felt pizzas :) I pretty much used the same template and came up with this festive pizza bunting! The addition of the red gingham fabric and jute twine really pull it all together.

Here is what you need:
- Felt in these colors: red, dark red, tan, white, black and green (and gray if you are adding mushrooms)
- Juste twine
- Red Gingham fabric
- Scissors
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hole Punch

First you will need to cut out pennant triangles from the tan, red and white felt. If you are no good at cutting triangles freehand (I pretty much suck at this), you will want to download a free pennant template like THIS ONE.

Trim off your red and white triangles with random curved lines. This will be the sauce and cheese of your pizza. As you can see, I was almost out of red felt so I wasn't able to get complete triangles :|

Now use the template from my Play Food Felt Pizza post and cut out pepperoni, green peppers, olives and mushrooms (I left off the mushrooms). You can download the template HERE <-----pizza template

Glue all your pieces together with your hot glue gun! 

Now use a hole punch (or you can just use some sharp scissors) to make two holes on the top of the "crust" for the jute twine to go through.

String the twine through the pizzas. Leave ends long so you can tie it to a table or doorway if needed.

Cut your gingham fabric into strips that are about 12 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. I like the look of rough and frayed edges so you don't need to cut perfectly. Tie the fabric in a knot between the felt pizzas as well as a couple on both ends.

We are ready to Party!

  1. Cute. I must say that it looks much better hanging than it does just lying on the counter. Fun idea. Question now is: After the party, what's going to happen to Mr. Pizza Garland?
