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.
