Colour pop Mexican Paper Bunting, or papel picardo to give it it’s correct name can instantly give your home and garden a vibrant, uplifting fiesta feel. So today, we’re super pleased to share some of our favourites from Mexican Decorations via Etsy.
Papel picardo literally translates to mean perforated or pecked paper. It has it’s origins in traditional Mexican folk art where coloured paper, usually fine tissue, is cut into beautiful elaborate designs.
We love it and it’s such a fab way of adding a pop of colour and fun and we think it looks equally good in kid’s bedrooms, home offices and anywhere where you want to add some bright cheer to your space. Take a look at more of our favourites below.
