Happy Halloween Bunting - DIY

Make some flag templates by using a diamond shape (I did this on pages on a mac, but you can do it it word/publisher etc), then fill them with different Halloween patterns, I just searched for 'Halloween patterns' on Google images! I then downloaded this font and spelled out 'Happy Halloween' with 1 letter per flag. (I'm sorry I tried to upload the flag documents but blogger won't let me :(, because then you could have all used the same ones, but if anybody wants me to email it to them just let me know and tell me whether you would like it in a format for mac or pc))
You will need scissors, double sided sticky tape or pritt stick, and some string ( I used black for Halloween)
Cut out all of the flag shapes and lay them down in order.
 Take a length of string ( I didn't cut mine until I finished as I wasn't sure how long it would be) and fold your flags in half.
Place strips of double-sided sticky tape onto the inside of the flag and peel away the non-sticky paper.
Place your flag under the string and fold the flag in half, keeping the string at the top!
 They your flag should look like this, keep going and don't forget to leave a bigger gap between the end of 'Happy' and the start 'Halloween'
 You now have your very own handmade Halloween bunting! I hope you like it!
