This is more like "Six Degrees of A Project" because it was inspired by my daily visit ( OK make that one of my daily visits!) to One Pretty Thing
which led me to The Crafting Chicks
to this project Trick or Treat Banner
which led me to the inspiration to make my own. Whew! Still with me?
Since I'm still stash busting (DAY 23
and though they taunt me, I haven't been to visit my friends Michael or JoAnn) I had to use what was on hand ( because that's SUCH a problem!). I adapted Jamie's idea and created the words "TRICK OR TREAT" in my graphics program and pulled some coordinating papers from my stash:
I cut out the letters ( putting a border around the letters helped me cut them out easily) and I cut starbursty thingies to go in back of them using my Cricut. Cut triangles from the polka dot paper and using coordinating scraps, tore pieces to go along the top of each triangle. I mounted the letters to the triangles using foam dots, strung (why does that look weird?) on twine, and tied cream and black ribbon between the letters:
|Hard to get a good picture that fits the whole thing in|
I haven't done my mantel yet but put this up temporarily to get pics.
Now go on over to The Crafting Chicks
because they have the coolest SPOOKY
banner up today!
