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.
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!
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!
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)!
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
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?
