Paper Plate Pumpkin Bunting Banner Easy Craft Idea

First step – decorate your paper plate pumpkins by drawing on face designs on the front with Sharpie markers.

My daughter did this with a friend and they had a blast making so many different pumpkin face designs.

There is no wrong way to draw a face design on the front of your plate. Make them scary, goofy, happy, spooky, or just silly! So fun!

You could stop there, but I wanted to add another detail. I cut out rectangle pieces out of a paper grocery bag. It was the perfect craft paper color for my pumpkin stems. Then I used a square of double sided tape to attach to the back of each plate at the top.
