Simple Fall Pumpkin Banner

Simple Fall Pumpkin Banner –

A couple of weeks ago I put together this simple pumpkin banner for Fall. I just can’t seem to get enough of these simple book page buntings! Pretty soon I’ll have one for every season! They’re so quick and easy to put together and add just the right handmade touch to our holiday decor. Scroll down for a supply list and instructions on how to create your own pumpkin bunting!
What you’ll need to make your pumpkin bunting:
some string or twine | a staplerbuttons |  orange + green coordinating pattern paper | gluestick or other type of adhesive | some pages from an old book
Here’s how you’ll put it together:
1. Using your book pages cut out however many rectangles you’d like approximately 3.5″ x 6″ in size.

2. Snip out a triangle shape from the bottom of your rectangles. Hint: From left to right, find the center of your rectangle then measure approximately 1 3/4 ” from the bottom to find where the top point of your triangle will be.
3. Cut out the number of pumpkins you’ll need for each piece of your bunting.

4. Attach pumpkins to your bunting pieces being sure to allow enough room to fold over the top edges. Place a button in the center of each pumpkin. I also added a small leaf to some of my pumpkins.

5. Now you’re ready to put your bunting together. Simply cut a length of string and attach banner pieces to string by folding top edge of banner pieces over the string + staple. Space banner pieces evenly along the string by sliding them back and forth as needed.

6. Now hang that cutie up somewhere and enjoy your new Fall/Halloween decor!


I hope you enjoy our little pumpkin bunting as much as I do! It was a lot of fun to put together and looks so darling hanging up in my home office!

    If anyone is looking for cheap books to use for projects like this, Target usually has paperback young adult classics in their dollar spot section…then you don’t have to feel guilty about tearing up an old book.

    For cheap “old” books, the dollar spot section at Target usually has paperback young adult classics for $1.

    I love this, Rebecca! Keep ’em coming! :)

    Thanks for sharing this idea. I love anything made with book pages. Very cute! It would be fun to use it to decorate a dessert table.

    These are adorable, Rebecca! I found your blog when I was doing an image search for a Valentine’s Day bunting back in January and I’m so glad I did. Simple As That is one of my very favorite blogs! At any rate, I’m with you about having a bunting for every season…I’ve done a Valentine’s, St. Patrick’s, 4th of July, Autumn…can’t wait to see what you do for Christmas. Thanks for ALL the inspiration!
