Spooky Banner

I shared this banner at A Glimpse Inside... but if you didn't get to take a peek, here is my spooky banner!
I have a little rule about not displaying any "spooky" Halloween decor until October.  It's the same rule I use about not listening to Christmas music until midnight on Thanksgiving!  I like to celebrate my seasons and holidays in due time.  So on Friday, I busted out this little guy.
I especially love a good banner or garland to hang across my tiny apartment mantle!  This is actually the banner I made last fall, and I squealed with delight when I got it out of storage.  So bring on the spooky banner!
Okay, maybe it's cute with a slice of spooky on the side!
I created pennant shapes out of cereal boxes!  As a crafter, I find myself saving the oddest things, and yes, cereal boxes are one of those things!!  I love that it is thicker than cardstock, but still easy to use!  I mod podged fun black and white paper on the front and back of each cardstock pennant.
Next, I created scallop shapes on alternating colors of black and white cardstock and mod-podged them onto the center of each pennant.  I found the cutest orange chipboard letters to spell out "spooky"!
Next, I lined each pennant shape with orange ribbon.  The orange ribbon really made those chipboard letters POP!
Now, I strung all of the pennants together with cute black and white ribbon.  I added little ribbon embellishments in between each letter.  I found the cutest tiny spools of Halloween ribbon at Hobby Lobby, and this was the perfect way to show it all off!
Doesn't the banner look lovely with my fabric pumpkins?
