Cupcake liner party bunting tutorial (football penalty flag themed!)

Cupcake liner party bunting tutorial (football penalty flag themed!)

You all may remember my Epic Football Snack Stadium I posted on Monday. Oh, you don't remember? Let me just drop this picture here to remind you:

BAM! Pretty dang cool, right? Well since I was already making the snack stadium, I thought I might as well decorate and throw a party as well, right? Of course I did. I'm a go-big-or-go-home kind of girl.

One of my favorite parts of the decor were this little penalty and challenge flag bunting made using a secret crafting supply: Skittles®! This was an easy, incredibly quick decoration that added so much to the party's 'feel.'

This project just requires three little things to make:

supplies

string or yarn 
cupcake liners (I used red and yellow for penalty and challenge flags)
Skittles®

That's it! Cheapest. Project. Ever.

Making this bunting was even easy, too! Just four simple steps:

1. For each 'flag' you'll need 1 cupcake liner and 1 piece of candy. 

2. Place your candy into the center of your cupcake liner.

3. Fold your cupcake liner around your Skittle® and wrap it up good!

4. Tie your string around your cupcake liner, just below the piece of candy. Repeat this process until you have as long of a bunting as you'd like, spacing them as far apart as you need. And you're done!

I was really surprised at how easy this football bunting was to make, so much so that I think I'm going to make some in coordinating colors (non-football related) when I throw my son his upcoming birthday party. Cheap and easy customizable party decor!
