Trick or Treat banner DIY


With every passing year, my decorations seem to be simpler.

Maybe it's because I have less time

or

Maybe it's because I like less fuss. yeah that's it!


This banner took less time to make than having the fabric cut at Wal Mart. Really.

I started off with 5 patterns.

I bought 1/4 yard of each.


I cut 2 diamond shapes each.


You will flip in half like this.


Ohhhh my favorite part!

These letter can be found here.

Thanks Martha!

I have been using these sweet letters for years now. Love em!


I just cut them out around the edge.


Rolled up a piece of tape and stuck er on.


I then folded the diamond shape over my ribbon and taped it closed.

no sew. no fuss. happy me!


That's about all I'm doing this year..

Other than the pumpkins on my mantel ;)


You can find my DIY chalkboard here.

I love how I can change out any holiday in just minutes.



Are you starting to feel fall'ish?

It's still pretty hot here in the deep south.

I'm hoping to find some fun colored pumpkins for my porch soon.

Fall...come on already. Bring it. please.
