Craft some Funnybones bunting

You will need:

 The Funnybones bunting template

 A pair of scissors

 Some string or Halloween-themed ribbon

 Mini wooden pegs

How to make it:

1.  Print the Funnybones bunting, on A4 paper for best effect

2.  Carefully cut along the dotted lines around the triangles

3.  Take the string and attach the bunting triangles along it at regular intervals. You can attach the bunting by carefully punching two holes in each triangle and threading through, or use mini wooden pegs

4.  Pick a spooky spot to display, and string up your bunting for a frightening Halloween effect.
