Halloween Fun!

Halloween is just around the corner and we have lots of stuff to share with you to add some spook to your mood. This banner is a quick printable that just requires some cutting, hole punching, and stringing. The printable pdf files appear after the jump.

You might remember this DIY wreath from Holiday 2010. We brought it back out and added a few mini pumpkins and gourds for our Halloween decor.

We have also included a very batty drum shade treatment that is sure to create some drama over the breakfast table. The printables appear after the jump. As a sidenote, subscribers got this project a week ago. If you are not a subscriber become one today here.  Not only do you get exclusives and sneak peeks, but subscriber-only contests, as well.

Lastly, be sure to check out this post on a super easy mummy cupcake to add to your Halloween treat table. The pic follows.

To complete these projects you will need plenty of black card stock.  

We cut a circle from the black card stock 1/2 inch wider (5.5 inches) in diameter than the printable. 

Note that we used two strings. One was woven over the top of the cards and looped in the back of the holes. The other was the exact opposite. This will give you more control over sliding the cards into place.

We printed our letters on copy paper and added them to card stock. You can glue them or use card stock for both if you prefer.

All of the materials and instructions for the drum shade are in the Batty Drum Shade Post link.
