Last time I talked about how excited I am for Halloween. Well, the calendar flipped over to October, so I decided it was the appropriate time to start getting spooky!
This DIY pennant banner is one of my favorite projects I’ve done so far. It’s very low cost and effort for what I think is a really dramatic and fun result. There’s a reason that these banners are a favorite of the blogosphere, and the apartment definitely feels more ready for Halloween with a banner along each bank of windows!
To create this craft, I just used a book of Halloween scrapbook paper I picked up last year (I got it for 40% off, and it has served me well!), some black ribbon (also from last year), scissors and a hole punch. It would have been a lot easier/neater if I had a paper cutter, but oh well! I used what I had, and honestly once they’re up, no one can tell if some of my cuts are a little wobbly. Cut out a nice stack of triangular pennants, use a hole punch to make a hole on each side, then string ’em up! You are instantly ready for a spooky celebration!
I ran out of ribbon, but I have some extra pennants left, so I think once I restock I’ll make a little mini banner for my cubicle so I can be spooky ALL DAY.
I did a few other DIY projects yesterday (and might still take on some more!), so I’ll be back with some more easy Halloween decor crafts as the month goes on. Boo!
