It’s been a busy week around these parts, so I am really excited today is Friday. I have another fun and inexpensive Halloween craft to show you today. This is the third project we made during MFTM Craft Class, too. What do you think of this Drop Cloth Candy Corn Bunting?
LOVE the way this cute bunting turned out!
You might be asking, “What do you mean ‘drop cloth’ candy corn bunting?” That’s right…I used a drop cloth from Lowe’s to create my Halloween bunting. Would you like to make your own?
Drop cloth (Lowe’s)
Triangle template (to trace)
Craft paint (orange, yellow, white)
50 inches of twine
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Trace your triangle template on the drop cloth. My triangle template was about 4-5 inches from the top point the base of the triangle. I traced 5 of them on the drop cloth, but you can do as many as you’d like. Just be sure to make your twine longer.
After your triangles are traced, use a sponge brush to paint the triangles *before cutting them out.* That way, you don’t have to be too careful painting. Paint them to resemble candy corn, yellow base, orange middle, and white point.
After the triangles dry, cut them out with your scissors.
Using your hot glut gun, put a bead of hot glue on the back of the triangles, along the base of the triangle. Attach them to the twine. I like to leave 1-2 finger spaces in between my triangles.
Once you finish gluing your triangles, you can cut 3 inch pieces of ribbon to tie at the ends of the bunting and in between each triangle. I used a yellow and white plaid ribbon and a thin orange ribbon.
And not it’s ready to hang!
Easy peasy, right? And you’ll have a ton of drop cloth material left to make buntings for friends or buntings for other holidays! I even use drop cloth material to make cute pillows or curtains!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends! I have more fun Halloween projects to share with you soon!
Have a great weekend! I know we will, with my daughter’s first soccer game and General Conference! Enjoy!
