Halloween pennant

I don't know why, but this year I am in the Halloween spirit! It undoubtedly comes from all of the fabulous projects I have seen around blogland (especially at Tatertots and Jello). So I have bought some things to decorate with but I am also making a few things. I thought I would share with you one of my Halloween creations:

This banner I actually made for my daughter - mine is still in the creating stage.... I found some great printed paper at one of the local craft stores and die cut the scalloped banner pieces and the DP pieces with my Cricut. I then used 2.5 x 10" strips of the patterned paper to make accordion folded embellishments which I adhered to the pennants, each topped with a die cut letter to spell BOO. If you look closely, you will see that the Os in the word also have eyeballs in the center of them. These were just small ovals of black cardstock highlighted with a while gel pen. I tied the pennnant pieces together with ribbon and added long tails to hang the completed piece with and topped the finished piece with a sparkly die cut ghost. Easy and fun to make!

I will be back tomorrow with more artwork to share and will post more Halloween DIY projects as I get them completed.

Have a creative day! And don't forget to visit my blog Ridiculous Lab where I am revisiting my 20s later today.

Hi Mary! Paula here and reading some comments from this past week... First of all, I am in the Halloween mood this year too....what's up with that? not sure. This banner is AWESOME!!! Love flags! You asked me about the pricing I found on my Caran d'Ache pencils. I found at Dick Blick, online, and they had a sale and then free shipping over 100.00. It was a great deal. Then I found a place online called Penwa, and that is where I got another good deal on all the Tombow markers. hehe, this is why I teach! lol :) Thanks for visiting me Mary, and have a great weekend!
