Fun and Colourful Banana Bunting
Banana Bunting! Simple to make bunting for celebrating Banana Day with this year! Banana day is on the 20th April and this year we will be trying out some banana treats, watching some great DVD’s and doing some banana inspired activities as well! Peakles wanted to make some decorations and we decided on making some simple bunting to hang up on the day.
Materials and Equipment You Will Need
- strong paper or card
- cord or strong thread
- pipe cleaner needle
- black marker pen or pencil
- yellow and green paint
- paint brush
- yellow and green glitter
How to Make Banana Bunting
First, take the paper and scissors and cut the paper into triangles all the same size. Next, take the yellow paint and paint a banana shape onto the triangle of paper. Then sprinkle gold glitter over the top of the wet paint. Do this with all the paper triangles.
Once the paint has dried on the paper, mix together some yellow and a tiny bit of green paint to make a yellow/green paint for the banana peel. Paint the peel either side of the banana and sprinkle with a little green glitter.
Leave the paint to dry and then add details on the banana skin with the black pen or pencil.
Finally, take the pencil and push through the paper triangle bunting at the top. Thread the cord through the holes using a plastic needle or a pipe cleaner shaped into a needle.
Once all the banana bunting has been threaded then hang it up!
