Halloween Banner

So Halloween came and went and I didn't even get a chance to decorate. It's not my favorite holiday (not even top 5), but it is fun to get the black birds, spiders, and moss out once a year.

For 2 weeks leading up to the big event I was painting the living room and making the drum shades. Decor was the least of my worries.

Before guests arrived to trick or treat on Sunday I had a chance to whip up this little banner.  I lucked out and found a dictionary at the library for sale for a whopping..... $0.25.  I layered the 8.5"x 5.5" sheets of cardstock with the pages from the dictionary, cut out circles, trimmed with starbucks cup cozies, and topped with printed out letters in the Rosewood font. ta-da. Strung it together with a strip of muslin that I tore for effect. ;)

Don't forget to get out and VOTE today!!
