Halloween is for Witches – canvas bag and banner

Mid-October means that it’s time to be very seriously planning and working on all the Halloween decor that will be so needed in just a couple of weeks.
Among all the blacks and oranges, our Crew member Kimberly opted for a slightly brighter option with the canvas background. She made a Witch-themed bag and an awesome Trick Or Treat banner that will look amazing on your entrance door.

  • Rip various width strips of ticking and make your skirt building layers with the canvas garland and ticking strips. Make a bow to decorate the centre.

Take your black ticking and cut a strip as wide as you want your skirt to be, then place it where you want the skirt to be and hot glue it down. Then place the legs coming out from under the skirt (you cut the legs out from orange ticking; approx. 2″ wide each) then add boots to each leg.

You can slightly spray the legs using Tattered Angels Baseboard Mist in Cardboard – this makes them look more distressed.

Take a rod and insert it into the banner (I used a curtain rod extender ). Once the banner is securely stretched on the rod, tear strips of your ticking fabric, tie them onto the rod together with pieces of jute rope and add burlap flowers to the ends.
