Fruit Wedge Bunting

We love these bunting garlands from our shop, so we’re always looking for fun ways to customize them (like this art deco version we did!). We decided to give this project a summery twist by turning the garland into fruit slices! When life gives you lemons, turn them into party decor! Read on for the full DIY!

Materials needed: Paper bunting fan garlands (in light pink, peach, yellow, and mint), scissorsScotch tape, butcher paper, pencilcardstock (in orange, yellow, mint, black, and white), glue stick

Step 1: Separate the segments of the fan garlands with scissors. Mix up the colors and tape the segments back together with scotch tape. Then, hang up the garlands.

Step 2: Cut shapes for the separate scallop designs from cardstock.

Orange, Lemon, and Watermelon Designs:

  • Create a template for a semicircle with a radius of 11.5” on a large piece of paper. The fan is 11” in radius, so an extra ½” will cover the entire fan. Cut out the template.
  • Layer pieces of cardstock over the template and tape them together.
  • Trace the template onto the cardstock and cut out. Measure out a 2.5” rind and cut out the center.
  • Make seeds for the fruit using white cardstock for the lemon and orange and black cardstock for the watermelon. Stack a few pieces of 2” by 2-½” cardstock and then cut out a teardrop shape. You’ll need 3 teardrop shaped seeds per lemon, 3 per orange, and 5 per watermelon.
  • Use Scotch tape to secure the rind to the top sides of the fan. Loop the Scotch tape to secure the center of the rind, and attach seeds.

Kiwi Design:

  • Cut out a half-circle shape out of white cardstock, with a diameter of 7.5” and height of roughly 4.5”.
  • Stack a few pieces of 1” by 1-½” black cardstock and cut out a teardrop shape. You’ll need 13 teardrop shaped seeds per kiwi.
  • Glue the seeds along the curve of the semicircle, with the the pointy half of the seed on the semicircle.
  • Line up the flat edge of the semicircle with the flat edge of the fan. Tape the edges of the semicircle to the top of fan.

    So fresh and summery! Perfect decor for a pool party, along with a platter of watermelon slices, a bowl of (spiked) fruit punch, and citrus popsicles :-)

    This is precious. Definitely pinning this for a future party – maybe I need to plan a fruit party just to revolve around this banner.
