Halloween is going to be here before we know it. Can you believe it?! I love Halloween paper crafts and I had fun putting this cute pumpkin and bat banner together. It’s got me pretty excited about the upcoming holiday.
- Dotted Cardtock- Orange.
- Darice Cardstock- Purple.
- Darice Cardstock- Black.
- Banner Punch Board (optional).
- Darice Baker’s Twine.
- Green Ribbon.
- Adhesive (I used Glue Dots).
- Darice Hot Glue Gun.
- Electronic Die Cutting Machine (optional).
Step 1. Cut your banner pieces by using the banner punch board. I cut mine to 4.5 inches.
Step 5. Score your strip of paper every 1/4 of an inch. Accordion fold the strip of paper.
Step 7. Punch out a circle, smaller than your accordion folded paper that is now a circle. Place a fair amount of hot glue on the circle (black) and then fold the top of the folded circle in toward the center, on top of the hot glue circle.
Step 8. Once the glue dries, your orange dot paper should look like this.
Step 10. Use foam dimensional squares on the back of your jack-o-lantern, and add a little stem with green ribbon.
This banner really was a fun one to put together! The jack-o-lantern faces turned out so fun, and the flying bats with them make this one of the best Halloween paper crafts I’ve made so far this year.
The center of the circle even makes for a cute round nose for the jack-o-lantern.
