Halloween Banner Wreath

A blend of Canvas Corp and 7gypsies Halloween creates a great look that is so on trend with a touch of kraft, touch of vintage and textures that tie it all together.

I love banners and finding new ways to display them. 7gypsies carries a fabulous 6 pc. board kit.  Canvas Corp offers so many beautiful papers to choose from. I selected “Black and Craft Ravens”, Edgar Allen Poe’s script with “The Raven” poem, and  Black and Kraft Diamonds.

Materials Used:
7gypsies –  Board kit
Extras:  Scissors; Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue; Stash of ribbons; Any small embellishments in your stash; Grape vine wreath
Step 1 – I covered each board kit banner piece with the beautiful papers.  You can also cover cardboard or book board to make your banner.

Step 2 – Decorate each of the banner pieces with assorted paper, ephemera, ribbons from your stash and add your theme pieces to the banner.

Step 3 – Begin to build on to each of your banner pieces by adding Halloween related goodies.   I also chose a paper from the “Wicked Gypsy” line called “A Wicked Pose”.   Make each one a bit different with different combinations of ribbon, burlap, trim, papers and ephemera to create each one.

Step 4 – Tie it to a grape vine wreath and use Decorative Clothespins to attach all of the banner pieces.

Add touches of black with alphabets, embellishments and details.  If you don’t have black embellishments you can paint them with Tattered Angels High Impact Paint – Black and convert them to match your decor.

I used orange canvas and ribbons from last year’s Halloween stash along with the embellishments I still had from last year.Halloween Banner
I also added black burlap flowers and black decorative clothespins for a few final touches.

Clothespins are great for holding your banner pieces in place and also to help hold items as they are drying (great double duty).

Pieces of Halloween Ribbon are great to tie in and wrap around your wreath.Halloween Banner Piece 5

Wrap the banner around a wreath, clip it to jute cord and make a banner for a mantel or holiday decor.  So gather all you bits and pieces that are orange, black, white and kraft to create a Halloween Wreath for the front door, mantel or front porch.
