Don’t Faint!



Two posts back to back… I'm almost scared to say I'm back on track because every time I do something cray cray happens.  


Thinking positive & moving forward…. 


To get myself in the swing of things again I've been working on a few Halloween projects to brighten up my Halloween decor in my house.  Each year I love to make a banner.  Stampin' Up! made that MUCH easier this year with the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory kit.  


I decided to make my banner from a vintage burlap coffee bag.  I was very hesitant making that first cut because I LOVE this bag, but I new this would make a fun Halloween banner.  

Halloween Banner, Halloween, Stampin' Up! Halloween Banner


This banner kit is perfect for a DIY Halloween project to make by yourself or with friends.  I used almost every piece in the kit and added the simple Paper Doilies.  To keep everything in place I used a a glue gun.  


Once the entire banner was complete I sewed our new Burlap ribbon across the banner pieces using Orange thread in a zig zag stitch.  Really simple but I love how using the vintage burlap coordinated with my vintage theme around the window panes.  


I was in love with this set up until I had seen another project that I had to create.  


This next project takes a bit more time… BUT… it's so worth it.  

Halloween Wreath, Stampin' up!

I'm not sure what the official name of this ca-ute wreath is but we will call it…. Very Ca-ute paper wreath.  


Not only does this project provide a great way to use Designer Series Paper, it also was a great use of my left over pieces I had from the banner kit.  

To create this wreath:

1. Cut 1 x 12" strips from 6 pieces of Designer Series Paper.  (I used 7 because I wanted mine a little thicker.)  

2. Once all of your strips are cut fold each one in half.  

3. Using a bone folder curl each of the ends.  

4. Once your strips are curled adhere each of the pieces to a Styrofoam wreath using stick pins.  

5. Make sure that all of the Styrofoam is covered.  


If you have followed me for any length of time you know I'm a huge Halloween fan when it comes to creating.  Each year I love to create new Halloween Ornaments for my tree.  Guess what I will be creating tomorrow?? Squeal! 

You can see the supplies I used for this project below.

I am still sitting up and soooooo enjoying your projects!  I love your antique/vintage ideas….they fit everywhere….cutting up that old bag must have been hard but you are so wonderfully clever…no fear for what you would do to make something wonderful!   Glad things are getting more settled and you can get back to doing what you love more often…lucky us!
