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.
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.
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!
