Halloween Freebie

October 7, 2010

If you’re looking for a last minute Halloween craft project, I’ve got an easy one for you!

Paper garlands and banners have been all over the place for a couple years now, and I thought I’d share one I made a couple of years ago for Halloween.


3″ circle punch (or a steady hand and a pair of scissors)
3 sheets of 8.5″ x 11″ white cardstock
2 sheets of black and 2 sheets of festive orange 12″ x 12″ cardstock cut into squares – black 3.5″, orange 3.75″
glue or double sided tape
small roll of 3/8″ ribbon

This banner/garland is a bit long, so you might want to break it into two, or only use the ‘Halloween’ portion if you’d rather.  It’s perfect for a long mantel or stretch it above a bay window or across a set of bookcases.  Here are the circles to print out on the white cardstock … all the letters to spell out HAPPY HALLOWEEN, and four Halloween spacers … for your Halloween crafting pleasure!  By the way, the left over spacers make great tags for Halloween treats.

I’ll be back Friday with pictures of the Halloween pillowcases the preschooler and I made Tuesday.  He and I went shopping last week for fabric and found something he fell in love with at a local quilt shop –  Happy Haunting by Avlyn, Inc. It glows in the dark!  Yep, glows in the dark.
