Start by activating a new edding gloss paint marker as follows: Shake the marker firmly with the cap still on. Place the nib on some scrap paper and carefully pump it up and down a few times until ink fills the nib. Try a few test strokes with the marker on the scrap paper. Always replace the cap securely after use.
To make the pennants, cut out squares of craft paper measuring roughly 20 x 20 cm. Mark out the triangles with the ruler, starting at the top left-hand corner and finishing at the centre bottom of the paper. Repeat the process, starting from the top right-hand corner. Cut them out using the craft knife or scissors.
For the words JUST MARRIED, you can make your own letter templates out of card, or use ours which you can download from our website. Cut out the templates and place them on the individual pennants. Draw round them in pencil.
Using the fine 751 gloss paint marker, go over the edges of the letters and then fill them in. When you've finished decorating, punch holes in the pennants top left and right and thread the ribbon through.
Hints and tips: There are so many ways to make your own wedding bunting to bring extra glamour to your party venue. Small white and gold circles look very festive and can be decorated any way you like with the help of edding gloss paint markers.
