Instead of carving a pumpkin, you can paint little pumpkin faces that will spook-ify any space in your home for cheap! Here is how…


Jack-O'-Lantern Banner

– Twine, string, or yarn. I went with some super adorable gray and white baker’s twine.

– 10-15 triangles cut from cheap black fabric. I found some fabric on sale for $1.50/yard (double fist pump!). The triangles are cut to 6″ on each side.

– Craft paint and paint brush

– Sewing machine or needle and thread

Get into the Halloween spirit with a paintbrush in hand. When I painted my Jack-O’-Lantern faces I tried to keep it simple-triangles eyes, circle mouths, square bucked teeth. All very cute, but more importantly easy to paint.

After the little spooky faces dried completely I sewed each one of them to my baker’s twine to create a banner. The stitch I used was a zig-zag over the top of the twine to make sure the twine was secured all the way down one side of the triangle.
