Creating a Halloween Banner - Part 3

If you are just now joining me then you'll want to go to Part 1 and Part 2 first. If you've been with me the whole time thank you. We are almost finished with our Halloween banner! Now that we're done with our prep work we can move on the best part of all -- assembly!

Step 7 - Assemble pennants

Layer your paper pieces and adhere to pennant. Make sure to alternate pennant patterns before you add your letters! Once the tops of your pennants are attached trim the edges flush with the pennant. Start adding your embellishments. Don't be shy about using foam tape. When you hang your banner on your mantle, door, or wall the dimension will give it lots of interest! Continue assembling the rest of your pennants.

Step 8 - Stamp bats on 3 Pennants

Stamp bats (or other images) using Colonial White Ink on the 3 dark pennants. When using Colonial White Ink remember that it is similar to VersaMark in that it's very thick and sticky and easily slides on your paper. Therefore, make sure you stamp straight up and down and not slide or rock your image. Also, please remember that it takes a little bit to dry so don't stack anything on top!

Step 9 - Final Steps

Trim and attach pieces from Midnight Felt shapes to create multiple banner elements. Once all your banners are decorated, turn the pennants over and use a pencil or hole punch in top two pennant corners. Attach pennants together using included jump rings or ribbon.

Congratulations! You have completed your banner!!

Now let's get a close-up of each one:

I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did! This really came together quickly and I hope you'll give it a try!
