Just finished my latest Halloween decor project ... of course if you know me, you are not surprised that it is a pennant banner. The banner says: Scaredy Cat ... I wanted something fun and a tiny bit spooky.
I loved doing it, I mean if there's glitter going on, I am going to love it, But it took me four hours, which was a bit of a surprise. First I printed off the oval frames I found at Graphics Fairy on old dictionary pages. Next I sorted through my letter cut outs and chose the ones I need. After that I added glue to the letters and glittered them. Continuing with the project I cut the dictionary pages into triangles, glued the triangles on card stock, cut the border with scalloped scissors, added the glittered letter, traced around it with a super fine sharpy, then trailed a bead of glue along the border between the dictionary page triangle and the card stock backing, adding glitter to that. Then I laid them all out and hot glued classic seam binding along the top, wet crumpling more seam binding and tying lengths of it between the pennants. Whoa, still four hours?
I really do like how it turned out, and thought that it was sort of elegant, which is surprising as I think of pennant banners as crafty and funky and fun!! I am planning a primarily black and white color scheme for all my Halloween decor this year, so this banner will fit right in. Thanks for stopping by.
