I have a craft show coming up this weekend and need some signage for my table.  I saw this tutorial for a newspaper bunting awhile ago and thought I would give it a try.

Here's mine:


a close up:


I Mod Podged it because we'll be outdoors and I want to get lots of use out of it.  I want to make it triangles like in the tutorial, but my stencils are huge and it was easier to square them off then to try and squeeze the letters on there.

Oh, and just for giggles, here's my table model, Opal.  She got a paint job and a new cheapo wig for the show. Sorry she is nudie, she'll be wearing a shirt and holding the others at the show!

Awesome!  I love how that turned out!  I think that the squares really suit the font, the colors and the name.  They seem super scout-y.

I would say maybe three hours start to finish.  Not long at all!
