Halloween Banner

Last year I decided to made this Halloween Banner completely out of materials I had in my scrapbooking stash. As you can see I had quite a lot of bits and pieces leftover from various sticker or embellishment sets, that I'd used in previous projects.
What tied the banner together was that the paper all came from a stack of glittery paper by Die Cuts with a View. A coordinating stack of paper is great way to save money in the long run because each piece of paper ends up being significantly less than it would be if purchased individually.The banner pendants are all made out of chipboard that I hand cut out, covered with paper, and then hole punched.
The circle letters are also made out of chipboard by Making Memories. It's actually the negative part of the letter that I used, so fun to get twice the amount of use out of a supply! I coated each with a thin layer of, what else, mod podge! Then I sprinkled glitter by Doodlebug Designs on each one.
The embellishments are from all brands like Jolee's Boutique, Papyrus, Making Memories, Heidi Grace Designs, and even little felt ghosts I die cut. You may recognize some similar ones from the Our Pumpkin frame and the Stand Up Mini Book I've already shared. So don't forget to shop your stash when starting a project!
I've linked this post the Creepy, Crawly, Crafts post on Mayhem and Moxie because I REALLY want to find a Flip Ultra HD Video Camera under the tree at Christmas time☺

I love this banner! It sounds like you put a lot of labor into it, but it's nice you got to use left-overs. I love these across a fireplace!
