Nursery Redo Series #4 Fabric Bunting Canvas

I don't know what it is about buntings, but I like them though I haven't made many. I also have a thing for canvas, so I decided to combine the two for a piece of wall art for the baby's nursery.

The supplies you'll need: canvas, Mod Podge, brush, fabric scraps, and string. I used a small brush (not pictured) as well as the big brush.
I also made a small cardboard pattern for the bunting triangles just to be consistent with their shape.
Then, I cut out a variety of colors of triangles. I hunted through my scraps of fabric and found colors that are in the nursery.
I laid out the triangles first and used the Mod Podge to secure them to the canvas.
Then I added the string and layered Mod Podge on it to secure it down.

I filled in all the gaps on the canvas with Mod Podge so that it would all be shiny when dry, not just the areas around the fabric and string. I let it dry for a small amount of time and then touched up areas that looked like they might need a little more Mod Podge to stick them down. Then, I let it dry for good.

I'm happy with how it turned out. I grouped it with a framed chalkboard and another piece I made using this tutorial. Also, I got some new fabric to make curtains. Lots to do and little time to do it.
