Bats & Pumpkins {Halloween Banner}

Funny story.  I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to have some Halloween decorations ready to go on October 1st.  I needed a banner, and got to work making a special one to hang up on our wall.  It turned out even better than I had envisioned (love it when that happens!).

Bats and pumpkins were on my mind, so I decided to go with that theme for my banner.  Here's how it turned out.


I used cereal boxes for the bats and pumpkins, spray painted them, added glitter, then hung them up on some twine.  You can't tell from these pictures, but the bats and pumpkins are super sparkly!!


I tried to get a few shots in the sun so you could see the pretty sparkles...



Now for the funny part of this story...

I hung my banner up on October 1st, then got the rest of my decorations out of storage.  Turns out I had forgotten about a banner that I made for Halloween last year!!  Oops!!  Hate it when that happens!!  Oh well....you can never have too many banners hanging up, right?

I never got around to sharing my banner from last year on here (that's probably why I forgot about it!).  I'll work on getting pictures of it so I can get it posted.

Your banner is super cute! I love how it sparkles. I hate forgetting I have certain things too, especially when it comes to decorations (I'm bad about making too many wreaths :) )
