Happy Monday Everyone!!
I finally feel like I’m settling in a bit. Still feels like I’m running around non stop, but the boxes are becoming less and less and I’m getting some much needed crafting time in. Now I just need to set up my sewing machine.
Today I have my first Halloween Craft of the year for you. I have to admit, I’m not super big on Halloween, mainly because I’m a scaredy cat! I can’t watch scary movies… I just hide under the blanket like a little girl… am I the only one?? Anyways… enough about my ridiculous fears, lol
I got these fun little skeleton dies from Lifestyle Crafts. I like to think they are smiling, hehe : )
To make this fun little skeleton banner, or whom I like to call “my little guys”, I cut them out using my Epic 6 (seriously one of my favorite crafting tools!). If you are unfamiliar with this tool you can check out tutorial on using your Epic 6.
Once I had all my pieces cut out I used thread to glue the pieces together to give them a dangle-y look. It also allowed me to post them on the black web.
I glue the main “body” portion of the skeleton directly to each other. I used the thread mainly for the legs and arms.
Once all my skeletons were together I used orange baker’s twine to hang them on and form the skeleton banner. I just hot glued the twine onto the back of their heads.
Do you notice the pallet backdrop? It’s the one I used in my summer mantel, I just added some black webbing from Menard’s (I’m pretty positive it’s at Walmart too… it’s just your basic Halloween webbing)
To hang the banner I glued the paper rosettes to thumbtacks and wrapped the baker’s twine around them.
Not going to lie… it did take me a while to glue those guys together with thread, but it is still a super easy project! If your kids are old enough this would be great for them to help you on! : )
Are you getting ready for Halloween? What are you making?
Wait, before you go!
