Here’s a DIY Halloweeny banner to try at home, a FoamCorePrint team favorite.
Things You’ll Need to make Halloween banner
Your canvas should be about 9”x6,” or you can go bigger than that if you want. Instead of cutting with scissors, rip the canvas or painters drop cloth to give the edges a rough look. Take the cloth to your sewing machine (and if you don’t have one you can hand sew) fold the top part of the fabric, leaving a little gap to feed the twine through. Print and cut a letter template online, apply this on the cloth, and use black paint to fill it up. Once all the letters are painted and dried… completely dry, add coffee to a casserole dish and submerge each letter in. Take the cloth out and gently use a towel to blot out any extra liquid. Leave them outside to sundry, and it should be perfectly coffee stained. Once they are sun-dried, feed the string through the loop, and your “happy Halloween” coffee-stained banner is ready to be hung.
Things You’ll Need to make Trick or Treat Banner
This banner is quite easy to make, probably even easier than the first banner. Printable banner letters online are easy to get and are absolutely free. You’ll need to download, print using cardstock, and cut these letters with scissors. Cardstock is better than regular office paper because they are thick and make the design solid. Typically, the printable letters online already have a nice and Halloween design. Use a hole puncher to punch holes on the top of all the letters, then string them together. And that’s it! Your trick and treat banner is ready. To make these banners pop a little, get black and orange ribbons and tie them to either end of the strings.
Things You’ll Need to make Ghost Boo! Banner
Download all black letters online on cardstock or download them on black cardstock. Paint glitter glue on all eight letters, sprinkle glitters on the letters and leave it to dry. Add glue to the paper doilies and paste it on the black cardstock paper. Make sure they are centered properly. Apply glue to the back of all the letters as well. Top the paper doilies with the letters. You can add these ruffles or leave them out; either way, this design will definitely come out awesome. Cut at least 12” lengths of tulle for each letter. Add glue to the edge of the black cardstock, all around. Now squish the tulle together and push them into the glue. Once you’re done with this, get out your hole puncher and add two holes on the top of the black cardstock and string them together and your Ghost! Boo banner should be done. Easy right? Get these banners out for every Halloween event or get new designs from all the sites we provided and get creative!
Felt is one of the easiest things you can use to make a quick and spooky Halloween banner. Here’s what you’ll need.
Begin by using your Cricut machine to cut out felt pieces for your banner. You can cut out ghosts, bats, skulls, and a scary pumpkin face. Cut out the felt banner template with your Cricut Maker. Stick the bats, skulls, and other elements on top of the banner template. You can incorporate some non-felt elements into the banners like markers and sequins. On the skull, you can make little felt flowers and stick them around the skull head like a crown. On one felt banner template make a spider web with two little felt black spiders on the net. You can get creative with felt and google other designs for each of the banners. With your Cricut Maker, you can make and cut anything thing. To attach your banners, use hot glue on the top of each of the banners, and stick in on the ribbon. You should be able to make 20 banners with felt to make the design really pop. If you’re not really good at designing, you can write words like horror, spooky, or scary. Just get creative and have fun.
