Trick Or Treat Banner
Last weekend I pulled out the Halloween decor. My oldest even asked me to wake him up early Saturday morning so he could help. We got most of it done and added a few scary touches here and there.
I worked on the mantel myself - since it's a little too high anyway. But one thing I wanted to add to the mantel was a banner. After deciding to use TRICK OR TREAT, I got to work.
I didn't have any letters on hand, so I just printed some out on regular paper on my computer and used some card stock.
I cut out the letters and attached them to the card stock with double sided tape. Punched two holes in the top and then ran some twine through the holes. I also added some ribbon between each letter.
On either side of the "OR" I added a cupcake pick skeleton. I found them at Michael's on my last trip there and thought they were too cute to pass up.
I loved the little hinges for the arms and legs. I just love how it turned out. I decided to use the bright traditional Halloween colors this year.
Super simple and just used what I had on hand, besides the skeletons. Tomorrow I'll show you the rest of my mantel.
