Community Bunting Project
Published on 29 June 2020
Federation Council invites community members to ‘send your community a triangle’ for the creation of festival bunting. This project will be made by the community and used by the community of Federation Council.
As we all attempt to continue to create and look forward to the events in our ‘new normal’, Council is bringing the community together with a project to increase enjoyment, community involvement and community support.
Recognising the need for community togetherness within such uncertain times, this project is aimed at reusing colourful fabrics or purchasing fabrics from local suppliers and creating bunting triangles. Cutting one triangle can assist the entire community to bring colourful event décor throughout the council area.
So where to start, you ask?
Download the bunting template and ‘how to’ instructions from this page. There are multiple ways you can create the triangles for bunting so we have readily made templates and specifications available, to ensure all creations are to the same dimensions, as the next.

When printing the template: select ‘portrait’ mode and ‘actual size’ before printing.

Select your fabric (crazy patterns, colourful, anything that feels fun and festive), and start creating.
Please use fabrics such as cotton or any similar tight woven fabrics to ensure the quality remains over time.
Desired to be 20cm x 29cm and edges of triangles crafted to not fray over time.
Triangles can be completed by any of the following:
- Cut with Pinking shears.
- Using an over locker.
- Hand stitched.

- Any other way you may know of.
Once you’ve completed your triangle/s, ensure to attach a label to your triangle/s with your name, contact phone number and date of delivery, then simply drop off at your closest local Council building.
