Stashbusting September Project #12: Quick Banner

But first, it's still not too late ( but almost!) to enter a lovely giveaway sponsored by Terrell @ Frou Frou Decor. Details here.

I'm still gearing up to decorate for Halloween which I'll do next weekend. But I made one more quick thing that is now hanging up in our bedroom. This was SUPER fast so I almost forgot to take pictures.

Designed the word "SPOOKY" in my graphics program :

Forgot to take a pic of the printout, so luckily this was still on my screen
Cut around the circles and cut out backgrounds on my Cricut. You could do this same project with decorative edge scissors or punches. Mounted the letters to the background and went around the edges with green "Stickles" glitter glue:
Glitter glue doesn't show up great but it's an acidy green
 Punched holes, strung on black organza ribbon, and hung it up:
This paper was double sided so you can see the orange reflecting in the mirror which also looks like a drop shadow

Once I get the actual Halloween bins out, I'm going to put the pull apart spider web stuff around it.
