Halloween – Witches and Bat Bunting

Halloween is fast approaching  – what about making your own Halloween Bunting?  We have teamed up with our favourite crafting expert – Michelle from The Crafty Foxes – to come up with some fantastic ideas that you can make at home or in the classroom.   Bunting is a great favourite – easy to make and easy to get creative … our bunting is Witch and Bat themed but you could try Pumpkins or Ghosts!!!

You’ll need:


Here we go, this is what we need to do:

  1. Start by consertina folding about 3 metres of the Black Poster paper from the roll
  2. Make each fold approximately the size of an A4 sheet of paper.  If you are using sheets your bunting will be smaller but can be stuck together at the end
  3. Next place the template on the top of the folded poster papers and using your pencil draw around the template
  4. Time to cut out – make sure that the hands are at the edge of each fold because this is how the garland will stay together
  5. Now you are ready to open out and hey presto … your witch bunting is ready to hang
  6. Want to make it unique … why not try decorating each witch differently to make them extra special – try some tissue paper, felt and wiggly eyes – perfect!
  7. We have also included a Bat Template – Bright Ideas Halloween – Bat Template – follow the same guidelines as above and you’ll end up with bunting just like ours ….
