Instructions to make Halloween Bunting at home
Total time: 1 hour
Step 1: Download and Print
Start by downloading the free PDF file or the individual PNG files from LondonDucklings. Then print the provided triangle templates in landscape mode. You can choose from a total of 12 Halloween colouring designs featuring classic Halloween icons like ghosts, bats, and pumpkins and one blank template for kids to make their own designs. Print the pages you like the most, or print all of them, and mix and match.
Step 2: Colour the Halloween triangles
This is where the fun begins! Use your colourful markers or pencils to bring life to the pre-designed triangles. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colours to match your Halloween theme. If you’re using the blank template, this is your chance to create your own spooky masterpiece. Whether it’s a grinning skeleton or a wicked witch, let your imagination run wild!
Step 3: Cut Out Your Triangles
Carefully cut along the lines of the triangles. Take your time to ensure clean edges and precise shapes. If you have kids joining in, make sure they have proper supervision while handling scissors.
Step 4: Fold and Assemble the Halloween Bunting
Now it’s time to give those triangles some dimension. Fold each triangle over the string or ribbon, with the design facing outwards. Secure them in place with a small piece of tape on the backside of the triangle. Make sure to leave some space between each triangle to give your bunting an appealing drape.
