OK, so I've been working on some Halloween decorations for selling purposes in my Etsy shop.  I started with a banner, putting several layers in it and just really playing with banner shapes.  How I love my Cricut!  I did actually sew the ribbon for easy hanging, and attached some little wooden sticks, too.  This turned my wall banner into a possible table-top banner, your choice!

(OOOOOOPPPSSSSS my camera came out in the picture above!)

From there, I also cut out some pumpkins, which I enjoyed running through my embossing folders, adding vines, adding Stickles, and wooden sticks as well.  These fit nicely into buckets loaded with candy.  :)  I used that alcohol marker to just color in the stem.  

My good camera wasn't cooperating once again so I missed a couple of detail shots that I wanted.  

The orange dotted PP on my banner is mounted on pop dots, as is the green circle in the middle, as well as the letters for the "Spooky" title.  I cut the title out twice, mounting the top one for a 3D effect.  Each piece of that banner is quite thick! 
So that's what has had me occupied for the last couple of weeks; whenever I was working on something this was it.  Now that's done, it's listed on eBay and Etsy, and we'll see if I can sell one or two or a hundred.  LOLOL! 


  1. Your banner looks great but I especially like the pumpkins. Love the little green touches around the stems. Hope you sell bunches!!
