Do any of you love fireworks? Like, love, love fireworks? Like, “Fireworks, will you marry me?” Maybe I’m alone on this one, but I love me some fireworks. Every Fourth, I hunt ’em down like an extreme couponer looking for a deal on free deodorant. You know those people love some free deodorant. And free Tic-Tacs. Back to fireworks. I am totally mesmerized by them but this year I’ll probably sit out. With Markus in towe, the fireworks will probably be too loud for those itty bitty baby ears, so we’ll need to craft up some fireworks of our own, in the form of a foiled Fourth of July.

I put my Minc to work on creating yards of sparkly, shiny bunting. This is not the kind of bunting you’ll see gracing homes on Martha’s Vineyard or Cape Cod. This bunting is too cray for Cape Cod. This bunting wants nothing to do with your Docksiders. This bunting is not Thad & Biff Approved. This bunting has all the pizzazz of fireworks, but your ears won’t be ringing afterward. Making these is super duper simple and I’ve added a new 60 second tutorial to Craft 101 that will show you exactly how it’s done. I started with a pile of patriotic patterned paper foiled with red, silver and teal foils.Foiled Bunting Banner and Party Decor | damask love

Foiled Bunting Banner and Party Decor | damask loveThe awesome thing about the Minc is that there are so so many pre-printed accessories that make your decorating effortless. Just pick a foil color and run those suckers through the Minc and out comes foiled goodness from the other end. It’s that easy.

For the cake, I used the Minc Cake Toppers set to dress up a store bought cake (shh, don’t tell) that I also garnished with a few fresh berries. Fresh berries make everything look homemade. IMG_9335

    1. Hey Kathy! I used 3×12″ strips of paper for each bunting. Check out the video tutorial to see exactly how it came together…and was always…thank you for your comment!

    1. Well, I can tell you which was more delicious. The cake. I didn’t try to eat the foil bunting but I can only assume that it’s not to yummy.

  1. ROFL – You are so funny! I love fireworks almost as much as you… I’m sure you could use your noise cancelling headphones on Markus so as not to hurt his ears or upset him with the loud noise of fireworks… Or better yet – with your amazing Miami view you can probably see some fireworks from your balcony?

    I LOVE the festive decorations you came up with!!! I wouldn’t have thought of that but the foil is perfect for a fireworks occasion! I like how you used the Popsicle stick – I wouldn’t have thought of that either… But then that’s why I follow your blog… You think of EVERYTHING!!! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. Girl – I love your comments. I feel like we “get” each other! Thanks for watching the video tutorial for this one and I’m glad it was helpful. The popsicle stick is a great way to make sure the bunting keeps it’s shape. That way when you take down your decorations, you can stash them away until next year and they come out of storage ready to use!

  2. I love the foil on this project! I keep telling myself not to buy a Minc, but then I see this and I feel like I have to get one. The struggle is real.

  3. Ok this is one of those projects, that makes me want to foil everything, lol. Yes, I admit it I am addicted to foiling, ever since I got my minc, I can’t stop, ugh the struggle is real but hey I’m rockin’ it with shine so bright it rivals fireworks.
