A Halloween banner was on my mind last week, and while I have Halloween fabric, I just didn't want to make a typical fabric banner. Then for some reason candy corn came to mind, and from the thought of the seasonal candy a new banner was born.
The Candy Corn(y!) Halloween Banner
Can you see my Halloween party garland hanging in the background? Want to make some? Go HERE for the deets!
It should probably ready Happy Halloween or even Trick or Treat, but alas, it just says Halloween. I used felt for the candy corn and letters and then a fabric bias tape for hanging it. I cut out the three colors of candy corn using white, orange, and yellow felt, and then I sewed them all to a piece of orange felt. Before I sewed the white top of the candy corn to the orange backing, I pinned the bias tape between the two layers and stitched around it.
THEN, since I'm slowly transitioning from the banner lady (the Italian called me that on Saturday after I hung the Halloween banner) to the wreath lady, I had to recreate this simple Halloween wreath I found. Seriously this one took me about an hour from start to finish to make, and it saved me approximately $30. ($35 if you count the special discounts the ladies at JoAnn's gave me because I'm there all. the. time.)
I saw a lot of cute Halloween wreaths on Pinterest, but since my door is red, I just didn't think black and orange would look so good. It kind of clashed in my mind. When I saw this one, I thought it would look perfect on my door. I think it looks pretty good. It's fairly basic. Maybe it needs a little something, but for now I'm okay with it. One day I'll show you the wall in my laundry room that I hang all of my wreaths. Pretty hilarious if you ask me. There's still room for more wreaths though, so don't think I'm done. (Sorry, Italian!)
Let the Halloween season begin!
