Halloween Crochet Bunting Pattern (Bat, Monster, Pumpkin, Spider, Bat, Ghost)

Halloween preparations are well under way at the moment – meaning Halloween themed crochet makes are taking over! Following on from the Pumpkin storage baskets is some Halloween bunting. I got the idea for this whilst making my fabric Halloween pumpkin bunting, but for this I wanted to add a few different Halloween themed items rather than just using the pumpkins.

This Bunting includes a pumpkin, bat, spider, ghost and Frankenstein’s Monster.

You can also use the Halloween items from this bunting to make a some crochet Halloween coasters, crochet Halloween themed wall hanging or a crochet Halloween themed table mat.
