No school yesterday and we were in the mood for some Halloween inspired crafting! We decided to make string bookmarks - some spooky and not so spooky - but all Halloween fun!

Start with:

  • Colored Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Large Hole Punch
  • Glue
  • Embroidery Thread or String

Create it! (for the Jack-O-Lantern version)

Step 1: Punch four circles from orange cardstock.

Step 2: Cut or draw (will need black marker if drawing) Jack-O-Lantern face.

Step 3: Glue face to orange circle.

Step 4: Cut approximately 1 ft. of embroidery thread and tie knots at each end to prevent unraveling.

Step 5: Add glue to one orange circle and place string in center.

Step 6: Cover first orange circle and string with Jack-O-Lantern circle.

Step 7: Repeat at bottom of string.

These bookmarks are a fun and useful way to add a little  Halloween excitement to the everyday!
