  1. Fold a piece of paper in half hamburger style. Draw half a pumpkin on the fold and cut out. Unfold to reveal the pumpkin.  
  2. Cut a stem out of green paper and glue it to the back of the pumpkin. 
  3. Fold a black piece of construction paper in half hamburger style and draw  half of a bat (use my image for a visual guide) using a gel marker. Cut out the bat. 
  4. Unfold the bat and use a gel marker to draw a face. 
  5. Trace a bowl or something circular on green or purple paper. The circle should be slightly bigger than the bat. It will be the moon the bat is flying in front of. Cut out the circle.
  6. Glue the bat to the circle moon.  
  7. Fold a white piece of construction paper in half hamburger style and draw half of a ghost. Make your own shape or use my image for a guide. 
  8. Cut out the ghost and draw a face. 
  9. If you want to personalize your banner, fold a piece of paper in half hamburger style and draw a zig zag pattern starting at the fold. Cut out the zig zag. 
  10. Place the black zig zag on a piece of orange construction paper and draw a larger shape around it. Cut it out.  Glue the larger shape to the back of the black one. 
  11. Use a gel marker to write your name or a spooky word like Boo! 
  12. Flip over all the pieces. Cut strips of black paper, fold them in half and glue each end to the back of each piece of the banner, leaving the center unglued so the yarn can fit through.  If you have a hole punch you can punch holes in each piece instead of gluing the strips.  
  13. String the yarn through the back of the banner. TADA!! 

I can't wait to see your halloween banner! Parents, if you are apart of the facebook group please share your child's project so I can see their creativity!
