Hi friends! I have a last minute Sizzix Halloween tutorial for you, in the form of a fun pennant banner. This would be a great project to make together with kids for or on Halloween, since the techniques are real easy.
Long pennant banners are hard to photograph in a nice way. Here I placed it on the ground so that you can see the whole thing. I made this banner for the Halloween party at Anton's school. I also die cut some of the same shapes for the kids to use when they were crafting decor for the part. They met on the weekend before the party to make some decor pieces.
The ghosts and skulls were inked and I placed black Deco Sheet behind their eyes and mouths. I also had some small die cut bats - from the Halloween Mixed Media set - on my desk and used them as eyebrows for the skull. I used the same ghost die for a banner for Anton's room last year, you can find that Translucent Ghost Banner Tutorial here.
The happy pumpkins got black cardstock behind them.
I used simple die cut shapes on this project, but you could of course make them more elaborate, for instance, by die cutting them from chipboard and painting them, or adding glitter, or maybe die cutting them from different patterned papers.
Here you can see it hanging in a window at home. It looked better at the school, but I didn't get any good photos of it there (not that this one is perfect, pennant banners are hard to photograph since they are so long and horizontal).
Happy crafting and thank you for stopping by!
