Spooktacular Halloween Banner

I’ve seen some amazing Halloween banners online lately and I was inspired to create my own. So I gathered my supplies and got into the spooky spirit! Here is how you can make your very own spooktacular bunting:

Supplies:
black crepe streamer paper
scrapbook paper (I used 6×6 pads of Apothecary Emporium & Mischievous)
white cardstock
orange cardstock
paper glaze or glitter glue
black glitter
black ribbon
2 3/8 Stampin Up scallop circle punch
3.5 inch scallop circle punch
1.5 inch circle punch
Black ink
hole punch
foam squares
Stapler
Adhesive tape

Cut 12 banner pieces out of scrapbook paper. Then ink the edges with black for a vintage look.

Next, create crepe paper rosettes using your hands and a stapler: Basically you just fold the crepe paper in your left hand (if you’re right-handed) into small, angled pleats. Holding the pleats down, keep going until you have formed a circle, try to keep it even. Stop and trim extra crepe paper when you have a circle then staple the middle of the rosette so it doesn’t unravel…you may need to staple a few times. I stapled each one three times just to make sure! 

Next punch twelve 3.5 inch scallop circles out of white cardstock, then twelve out of orange cardstock using the smaller scallop punch.  Rub black ink on all the edges.

I made a template for the letters using Photoshop, I printed them on white cardstock, and punched them out using a 1.5 circle punch and then used paper glaze om each letter so that the black glitter would stick. I let those dry for about 30 minutes.  (See below for a free printable of the letters I created!)

To assemble: Use an adhesive roller to attach the orange scallop circle to the black crepe rosette to the white scallop circle and onto the banner. Use foam squares to attach the glitter letters to the top. Finish by punching holes in the top of each banner piece and string them together using ribbon.

Now sit back and enjoy the wicked view!
