Today we’re showing you how to make the easiest ever Halloween bunting. It’s fun for kids to make and really does cost next to nothing to put together.
You’ll need a few things to get started…
- A4 coloured paper in black and orange (we use the Tesco A4 kids coloured craft paper priced at £2.50 for a big multicoloured pack)
- White pencil
- Hole punch
- Wool or string
Let’s make the Halloween paper bunting…
- Firstly fold the black and orange paper into half, then half again and cut it so you’re left with small rectangles of paper.
- Next draw on your letters – HAPPY HALLOWEEN – one letter on each rectangle.
- Cut out the letters carefully.
- Hole punch the tops of the letters and thread them onto the wool or string.
- Hang up your Happy Halloween paper bunting. We think it works well hung from the bannister, but would also look great across a doorway, large window or even strung across the ceiling, garland style.
A really easy craft that looks great and won’t cost you lots of money. Great activity for keeping the kids busy over the October half term.
Make it your way…
- Decorate your paper bunting lettering with back felt tip pen designs or silver star stickers.
- Go sparkly and use glitter card for your letters.
- Change the phrase or size of your bunting – opt for big cut out BOO! letters or TRICK OR TREAT, whatever you like the look of.
