Are you ready for Halloween? No, I’m not, but I did want to get started on my Halloween crafting so when it is time to decorate I’ll be ready. I decided to start with crafting a fun Halloween Spook Banner.

It’s made completely out of scrapbook paper which makes it easy and affordable. I started by cutting the paper in triangles measuring 5″x7″.

I free handed the faces then cut them out and used a glue stick to secure them to the triangles.

This is Frankenstein’s hair.

The details on the owl were added using a marker.

The cat’s whiskers and mouth were added using a pencil.

I pieced different colored paper together to make the candy corn.

And I tore off the top of the gray paper to make the ghost. I like his goofy face too.

I put the banner together using twine and clothespins. I really love working with paper. It’s been a while.

So my Halloween Spook banner is ready. Now I’m putting it away until October (and finally painting the red wall).

Do you have any home decor and/or organizing projects to link to the Home Decor and Organizing Link Party? I’d love to see what you’ve been working on. You can link up your projects through Friday night. I’ll be featuring some on facebook and here later this week.
