Danielle here, sharing some spooky DIY decorations for Halloween. I decided to combine beautiful elements from both the Shay and Rebekah kits to create some fun bunting and a little banner.
I had this idea to make some bat bunting but I wanted the bodies of the bats to be made out of pom poms, as you do. I used a cheap little pom pom maker and some black chunky yarn to create my pom poms.
I stuck some Megan puffy heart stickers and zeros from the Lola puffy alpha stickers to work as eyes for my bats. Then I chose two monochrome Shay papers (stripes and stars) and cut them into wings, then backed them to my pom poms using a glue gun. Once my bats were made, I used some black and white bakers twine from my stash to connect the bats into bunting.
To make the “Boo” banner, I chose a sheet of Shay stripe paper, backed it on a sheet of Rebekah pink paper and then looped some more bakers twine around the back to create a hanger for the banner.
I added two leafy die cuts from the Rebekah die cut shapes, then backed my BOO Shay chipboard alphas on a piece of the bold stripe pink Rebekah paper.
These little decorations were easy to put together and I’m looking forward to having them up near my front door for Halloween.
I hope you like my DIY decs and thanks so much for reading. I’ll be back soon with another post.
