It's Monday, and time for another fun challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut!!! This week we'd like to see your fall/Halloween home decor projects!! I read somewhere that Halloween is the most decorated for holiday after Christmas. At my house, I have a lot of fall decorations, but I don't have much that is very Halloween specific. So, I decided to make a banner for my kitchen with some Halloween paper. Here's what I came up with!!
I used the Pretty Pennants cartridge to create the base layers for my banner. Since the banners don't come with holes that you can run ribbon or twine through, I glittered up some mini clothes pins with some Martha Stewart glitter and pinned them to a couple layers of black tulle.
I cut the letters from the Mickey Font cartridge using the "silhouette" font feature. I also cut a couple of cute monsters using the Create a Critter 2 cartridge.
I had kind of a hard time getting this to hang over my blinds, I'm really picky about the tape NOT showing at all, and it was kind of hard to hide through the sheer tulle. I think I got it up there pretty good, and definitely well hidden though....we'll see how long it stays up!! We'd love to have you share your creations with us this week!! Thanks for stopping in!!!
