HOW-TO MAKE A HALLOWEEN PENNANT BANNER
last week i made a handful of these halloween pennant banner kits for our upcoming boutique. they are super fun to make. i thought i might as well create a how-to post about it for those of you who might like to craft up your very own!
you'll need some festive halloween paper for the banner, even basic black cardstock could work. cut out eleven pennants from the festive scrapbook paper. six inch triangles work well! on a nice pumpkin colored cardstock, print out the word halloween. if you'd like to purchase the one i designed (shown here, with witches), my pennant download is available for five bucks right here. using a large punch or scissors, cut out the letter circles. voila! now you have circles and pennant triangles, you're halfway there!
attach each letter circle to a festive pennant with double stick tape, puffy glue dots, or old school masking tape in tiny rolls like your second grade teacher did. using a small hole punch, punch holes near the top corners of each pennant. space them wide, so there are two holes on top of each triangle. no measuring necessary, just loosen up a bit and eyeball it.
now lay your pennants out on a flat surface. string them one by one onto a lovely long ribbon (4 yards is perfect). leave some excess ribbon on each end for tying. make sure you spell halloween right while you're stringing the pennants so you won't have to undo all that hard work! i think the witches look nice on both ends, facing inwards. but that's just me.
hang your halloween banner, add extra ribbon at the ends if you'd like and impress your party guests. trick-or-treaters will be in awe of your homemade halloween decor! carry on with your halloween-ing festivities.
