DIY Spooky Banner

It's still September, but I've been itching to get out my Halloween decor.  We are getting ready to move out of our little apartment (and into our first house!) and my mom has been so great to let me style her house to take pictures of my projects.  I can't wait till I'm decorating my own home!

I made a really simple banner in picmonkey.  You can just keep it like it is but I wanted to add something to it.  

For this project, you'll need:
 -printable banner (print it HERE)
-black paint
-paint brush
-lace ribbon

You don't need a lot of ribbon.  Just cut off a small piece and paint it black.  Then press it onto your paper like a stamp.  I loved playing around with it till I got the design that I wanted.

My mom and I found these awesome burlap banners for a couple dollars at the Dollar Spot in Target.  I love Target!  I wish I had bought a ton of them while they were there.  It was so easy to just cut out my banner and tape it to the burlap banner.  If you don't have a burlap banner laying around, my other idea was to use black construction paper and twine.  

I couldn't decide if I liked the WICKED blocks or the lanterns and bottles better.  I love playing around with bottles.  We had these chalkboard label stickers and I used a white pen to write my potion labels on it.

Halloween decor is so fun!  I keep thinking of new ways to spookify my home!  I'd love for you to follow along with me!  Find me on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram. Happy early Halloween!
