DIY Bunting: Halloween Edition

So, if you’re anything like I am, you’re unapologetically obsessed with all things Halloween…especially when it comes to putting those spooky touches around the house! 

This year I decided to go for a more sophisticated decorating theme, thus leading me to classic bunting. If you’re on a budget this DIY is perfect for you (how does FREE sound?)

Ok, let’s talk materials. Here’s what you’ll need:

Paper grocery sacks
Hole-punch (or if you don’t have a hole-punch in your possession, just use a big nail!)

**Side-note: If you don’t have access to a printer, just grab some stencils and a black marker--it’s more time consuming, but still super easy! 

Alright, let’s get to the How-To:

Step 1: If you’re using a printer, cut your paper bags to the size of your printer paper, pick your favorite font and print whatever Halloween inspired phrase you want onto your bags

Step 2: Once you’ve got your letters printed, cut the bags into triangles that are 8” at the top and 10” on the sides with the letter centered in the middle

Step 3: Now you’re ready for twine!  Punch holes in the top of your triangle -- maybe 5 inches apart -- and run the twine through (I ran mine through the back so it could be seen across the top)

AND THAT’S IT! Easy, right? 

Have fun haunting up your house!
