Adorable and charming, these mini cake buntings will be the star of your birthday celebration!

Free Printable Happy Birthday Mini Cake Bunting in Several Colors

I love simple decorations when it comes to celebrating birthday. I used to be that mom that went crazy and had everything coordinating and adorable and handmade and finally realized my kids could care less. (Not that there’s anything wrong with it at all if that’s your thing – I just decided it wasn’t mine).

A couple of years ago I created a chalkboard version of the mini bunting. The chalkboard one actually includes the whole alphabet so you can use it for whatever you like.

I always had intended to create another version in a variety of colors and finally I finished it. It’a available in TEN different colors and each set includes the words “Happy Birthday” as well as number 0-9 and number suffixes so you can personalize your mini bunting for the birthday person’s age.

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a fan of glitter. It’s messy and my house is messy enough without adding to it with a glittery banner. Last year I discovered that I could get the sparkle I loved in printable form by creating a glitter look on a printable. You can grab the glitter version at Tatertots and Jello today.

All you need to put your bunting together is some thin string, like baker’s twine, and some paper straws or wooden skewers. Attach the bunting letters to the string in two lines, then attach the string to the straws or skewers. Be sure to test out the spacing so that the bunting will fit on your cake. You can glue or even tape the bunting to the string, or if you have a 1/16″ hole punch (affiliate link) you can punch each side and thread the twine through.

    Hi there,
    I love your free printables, you are talented! I would really like the chalkboard alphabet to make a mini happy birthday banner out of it, but I cannot find the working link. Any help? Thanks so much!

    1. Kristin Maxwell says:

      Hi Erin, Thank you for alerting me to the issue. Please revisit the post and scroll to the blue button that says “download.” The link has been repaired and shouldn’t present any further problems. Let me know if it still isn’t working for you.

    Thank-you! This is exactly what I needed! Scrambling to make the day feel special on my loved one’s birthday, I thought a mini banner would be perfect for the pile of donuts I’ll have out for a breakfast treat. This will be perfect, thanks again!

    1. Kristin says:

      You are so welcome AJ! Thanks for stopping by.

    Thank you for this, I have a quick question, is it better to print these on cardstock or on regular paper? I know it sounds silly, but I’m printing it for a 50th birthday at work, and would like for it to stand up for a little while (we have several of them coming up this year)

    1. Kristin says:

      I would print on cardstock if possible.
