Halloween Bunting – It’s Sew Easy!

I decided what we needed above our fireplace was some fun Halloween bunting! (Stu has since suggested I make Christmas bunting, so watch this space)! This is a quick and easy sewing project for beginners or experienced sewists!

I chose to decorate using some vinyl and my Cricut Maker. Of course you could cut out letters from paper or fabric and glue or sew them on; this is a pretty versatile project, and of course you can choose fabrics or colours that match your own preferences.

Basic Bunting

I picked up a hessian pennant flag bunting kit; (I think it was from The Range; but you can get them everywhere around this time of year) for about £3. I think…

Anyway the kit contained six pennant flags; which of course isn’t enough for “Halloween”; so I decided to use up some of my fabric stash. Removing the hessian twine, I chose to sew all of my triangles together with some orange ribbon!

I even used some fabric with a hole in it, because you can get away with it at Halloween right?

You can read about how I make my bunting here, I’m getting quite addicted at this point!

Hello Halloween

I ended up cutting eleven flags, needing 9 for “Halloween”; I’d already thought of “Hello Halloween” and it seemed weird to just end there; so, in case you’ve missed it; I’m going for a very pumpkin based theme this year, and so this seemed only right!

Jack 'o Lantern foil on bunting

To do the lettering I used Cricut foil adhesive vinyl in orange and green. I was originally going to use black iron on; but I didn’t have any in my stash, so I decided to use up some of what I do have! (Maybe next year it’ll get an update)!

Cricut Adhesive Vinyl

I used a font I have on my laptop; and a free image from Design Space for the Jack ‘o Lantern.

The Finished Halloween Bunting

Hello Halloween Bunting

This (as it turns out) is very difficult to photograph; considering how our living room is lit, and because the foil is SO shiny! So here are three parts…

Considering aside from the hessian bunting; (I wanted my decor to tie in, so needed it). I used stash for this whole project, I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

What do you think?

Do you have any seasonal decorations? Will you be making any let me know in the comments below; or of course you can come and chat on socials! I’m also sharing different things over on Instagram this month!

  1. Halloween bunting above your fireplace was the right call, as it looks fabulous! I hope you do make some Christmas bunting. 😊

    I didn’t realise hessian pennant flag bunting was so affordable. I like how you incorporated your own fabric into this piece. The orange really complements the hessian fabric.

    I like your Halloween bunting! I don’t have any specific seasonal decorations. I have a few Halloween items but no Autumn accessories, although I love seeing other people decorate their homes. 😊 Thank you for sharing your craft project.

    1. Thank you!
      It’s good fun coming up with ideas haha!
      I really debated on “Hello Autumn” so (because I used adhesive vinyl) I may play around with some new ideas next year!
      I can’t believe we’re only half way through the month lol.
