Quick and Easy DIY Halloween Banner Tutorial

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a fun weekend to look forward to! I will be spending mine catching up on housework and helping my sweet mama move into her new house – not exactly fun, but definitely necessary. Hopefully I can carve out some time for a couple of fun projects over this three-day weekend. Speaking of projects, my lovely and crafty daughter made the most adorable Halloween banner to dress up our front entryway, and I thought I would share this “Quick & Easy DIY Halloween Banner” tutorial, should you want to make your own.

Materials needed:

Scrapbook paper in coordinating patterns of your choice

Scissors

Hole punch

Ribbon (3-4 different types work best, but if you only have 1 on hand, that works, too!)

Twine 7-10 foot length (you can also use ribbon, if you don’t have twine).

Instructions:

Cut your twine (or ribbon) to the length you want your banner to be, leaving about one foot of extra length on each end, for hanging. My daughter made hers 9 feet long.

Make a template for your flags. My daughter simply cut a rectangle to the desired size, then folded it in half lengthwise, and cut her little “triangle” shape at the bottom. You can also find patterns online, and print them out, if you wish.

Using your template, trace patterns onto your scrapbook paper, then cut them out. My daughter made her flags 6″ x 4″, and used a total of 18 flags for her banner.  (You may need more or fewer flags if you make your banner shorter or longer).

Punch holes in the top corners of each banner, and string your twine through, leaving about one foot of length on each end. You can tie knots in the twine at each end of your banner to help hold the flags on, if you wish, but we found they stay on just fine without them.

Cut your ribbon(s) into 5-6 inch pieces, then tie onto the twine, between each flag. My daughter alternated her ribbons, and sometimes used two together, for variety.
