So I have the fall/Halloween decorating bug already. A few cool days & I'm ready.
I'm already dreaming of what Peepers can be this year... This may be the last year I get to dress him in what I want to be for Halloween :(
This is a super simple craft to get the season started.
You need paper (Halloween theme card stock), scissors, ribbon, a hole punch, double stick tape or glue & a few minutes.
1) Cut out your letters - mine are 4" tall. I punched these at Achiever's but you can print off a letter in a a scary font & trace it on to paper.
2) Cut a rectangle bigger than your letter. I think this was 4"w x 5"h. I used paper edger scissors & a ink pad to make them look old and worn.
3) Use double stick tape or glue to adhere the letter on to the rectangle, punch some holes, weave some ribbon (be sure to leave long tails if don't know where you want to hang it.)
Hang in in the mirror in the dining room
Or hang it here (notice the classy masking tape holding it in place)

I think this will look great with a few cob webs over the vintage window.
For a SERIOUSLY CUTE Halloween Banner that involves some sewing go here. I will have to add this to the "TO DO list". I love this!

Thank you, Karla
