My husband made me this awesome pergola swing for my Mothers Day/Birthday present. I am in love with it!!! Didn't he do a GREAT job??
I thought it might need a festive touch since our patio has lots of color.
I thought a bunting would be great on the pergola but I didn't really want a fabric one. So, I put my thinking cap on and thought why not use reusable shopping bags. They come in fun colors and are water proof. I went shopping and I found lots of fun ones and decided on these three.
The two end ones were from Pier One and the middle one is from TJ Maxx. I also found some really cute ones from Dollar Tree which I didn't use for this project but will for something else.
(I did not cut the scallops on the pointed one.I just made them straight)
I cut my bags a part and then traced the template onto the bag.
I then cut them all out.
I used ribbon to hang mine on. I thought about bias tape, but didn't have any.
Then you just hot glue them onto the ribbon and hang. Pretty easy!!
And here are my adorable granddaughters enjoying G-ma's new swing with her fun bunting!
Here is my swing with my other lawn furniture.
(I know that table needs some love. It's on my list to do this weekend. I see a fun bright color!)
If you are interested in the plans for the pergola swing email me at email@example.com and I can email the link to you.
Enjoy your family this weekend!!
