Looking to add some green Halloween decor to your home this year? This reusable Halloween banner can be put together in less then an hour with help from the kids (and it is not messy!)
- Felt (eco-felt or wool)
- Twine (yarn, string or ribbon)
- Pattern Pieces (pumpkin, ghost, bat)-I found mine here
Trace pattern pieces onto felt. On a 9”x12” piece of felt I was able to cut out the 6 pieces needed for each shape on one piece. Cut out pieces.
Cut two small holes in the pieces with the tip of the scissors (to feed twine through).
Decide the length of your twine (I went with 10’). Cover one end of twine with sticky tape (this will make it easier for the kids). Lace pieces along twine in pattern of your choice.
Add a finishing knot to both ends of twine. Hang up and enjoy!
My very crafty daughter decided the items needed faces and used glow in the dark fabric paint to add eyes and mouths to all the pumpkins, ghosts and bats. It does not glow for too long if you are hanging this in a bedroom and don’t want to be scared in the night by glowing eyes!
No time to pick up some felt? Try using some cardboard from the recycling box and have the kids colour the pieces.
