Easy SPOOKY Banner…

See, I already had to make one more Halloween decoration. Who am I kidding? Like it will be the last one!
Spooky Garland
I generated the letters using my PrintShop Deluxe program, printed on cream cardstock, cut out and then went around the edges with black ink.
Halloween Banner Letter
Mounted each letter onto glittered gold cardstock and then added these cute squiggle brads (also glittered) from Recollections @ Michaels.
Time to embellish! Remember this glittery stuff I used on my repurposed dress wreath?
I got that out again and embellished each letter:
Elmer's Glue Pen
using this awesome double sided Elmer’s glue pen. I love this thing!
Halloween Garland
Cut out the banner shapes from DCWV’s “Ghosts and Goblins” stack using my Cricut .  I also used it to cut out the circle and sunburst shaped pieces from the scrap cardstock. Inked the edges of the circles ( I was going for a grungy look so I wasn’t especially careful) and then finished off with glittered pumpkins! These are also from Recollections @ Michaels…a package of 12 ( I still have orange and brown) that were 2 packs for $3.

I am digging the banner. That is something I have never done. I did get the banner kit from Michael's (Martha Stewart), I am sure going to try it now. Where are you hanging yours?

Super cute, Carol!! I cleaned Michael's out of their Halloween Recollection stuff a couple of weeks ago when it was on sale. ;) But I missed those little pumpkins! Love them!

Really, really cute banner I learned so much just from reading your instructions! I need a cricut or a silhouette! I really do. Maybe Santa will bring me one this year.
