Halloween Mini Banner: Five Minute Craft

I've used this Halloween Mini Banner in the photos of several posts. A few of you asked where I bought it. It was actually a quick five minute craft! I thought I'd share the tutorial for it below>>>

I love a good mini banner. I put them across wreaths, on the corners of mirrors, on top of chalkboards...pretty much EVERYWHERE! And this one was so simple to make. Here's how I did it>>>

For this project you'll need {feel free to make substitutions and do your own thang}:
  • Baker's Twine {love the black and white for Halloween}
  • Straw Topper Flags {these make it so easy to thread the twine through since it's already perforated}
  • Washi Tape {in Halloween colors}
  • Halloween stickers {small enough to fit nicely on the straw toppers}

Use masking tape around the end of the Baker's Twine to make it easier to thread.

Thread the straw topper and then alternate with washi tape.

Center your twine onto a 3-4" piece of washi tape.

Fold the tape and cut it on an angle.

Stick a pumpkin on it and call it good...
well, after you've done this a few more times, anyway.
But seriously...it's a five minute type-of-thing!

Simple and easy! And you can make it as long as you'd like it.

I love it across my monogram pumpkin. But, I may make another for my wreath, too!
These monogram pumpkins were a free printable I did here.

Happy Halloween Season!

  4. Hello Kristi! I just wanted to let you know that I featured this project on my blog today. I saw some great Christmas washi tape and the dollar store and think I will make this into a Christmas banner! Thanks for participating in the Pin Junkie's 2yr Blogiversary Link Party (I was a co-host). Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks again for sharing this project!
