|Creating Halloween Bunting|
Last year we created some wands and bats, so this year it was all about bunting and ghosts.
|Materials used to create our Halloween Bunting|
* Gold Jaguarita paper from MX Wholesale
* Black Card
* Plastic Mice, Spiders and Bats
* Hole Punch
The idea behind the bunting was to get Max to draw spider webs and patterns on each of the triangles - but he got bored, so maybe next year....

Once the card and the paper were cut I then trimmed the gold around half an inch to give a nice black card border for the bunting. Once glued on to the card this is a good time to get the kids to colour in, draw or even paint.
I used letters that we purchased from Sainsburys but that was on a whim, I had planned to use purple and black paper to cut out the letters. I used my good old faithful Mod Podge to glue the letters on but once Max decided where the bats, rats and spiders were to placed I used my glue gun when he was distracted with Scooby Doo.... .He's 4, so the attention span lasted quite some time!

We also used some of our corrugated strips to made some pumpkins, a spider and a lion. These were a bit fiddly but rather satisfying when complete!

And finally as I mentioned above, our craft projects this year were bunting and ghost related. The ghosts we made were loosely based on the craft I mentioned from my Fandom Friday post. After we created the ghost lights I had some ghosts left over so I made larger holes in the bottoms and placed them over LED tea lights - these I love!
