Halloween Home Decor Banner

I was so inspired by the new Salem Heights line that I wanted to create more Halloween Home Decor--I just couldn't stop crafting with this collection. Today's project is a banner that could be used in several different ways. You could add ribbon to the sides, and hang it on the wall or a doorknob. You could even prop it up and place it on a bookshelf.

I wanted to create some variety of shapes and sizes so I die cut squares, rectangles and circles from coaster board, which is a thicker base than cardstock. I then die cut coordinating shapes from the Salem Heights patterned paper kit, and adhered it to the chipboard shapes. Then I embellished the banner. Seriously, this was one of the easiest and quickest home decor pieces I have ever made! So simple and fun to make.

To create some dimension on the, "H" I affixed both a chipboard bat and cardstock sticker bat over Hawthorne Hills paper. I tied some black twine around the top of the jack-o-lantern for the "A," and lifted it with some foam tape adhesive. The first "L" is place atop a skull sticker and black and white ribbon trim. I love the way it looks with the Dead Man's Parlor paper.

The second, "L" uses Hawthorne Hills paper with a chipboard bat. Then for the "O" I used Spooky Town Bash and affixed the cat with foam tape and a bow of green twine. I love this cat sticker, especially since the cat isn't looking at us.

I was so happy to see a creepy and big spider web embossed on paper in the kit! I trimmed the paper so that the center of the web is in the corner of the banner panel, and then I added a chipboard spider with foam tape to the web. For the first, "E" I cut out two stars from Spooky Town Bash, threaded some twine through the stars, and adhered them to the Hallows Eve panel with tape. I love the contrast created by the black, purple and orange. For the second, "E" I covered a coaster board panel with Hawthorne Hills paper, and tied ribbon on the ends of the candy piece. I then layered the letter, "E" over the "Trick or Treat" sticker. The "N" is adhered to a skull and crossbones sticker on top of Hawthorne Hills paper.

The Salem Heights collection from SEI is a definite MUST HAVE for Halloween! I keep finding inspiration for making projects with it every time I use it.
