Happy Halloween!! I hope you are all having a spooktacular holiday today. When going through my Halloween totes this year, I came across some old felt coasters that I picked up at Target on clearance a couple of years ago. I meant to do something with them last year, but never did. This year, I decided to use them to make a fun Halloween banner.
This was such an easy craft that I forgot to take pictures. Ooops! Anyway, here is what you’ll need.
- Twine (Mine was black and white striped that came in this 18pk twine kit from Target)
- Hot Glue Gun/Glue Sticks
- Felt Coasters (or you could use these foam shapes from Michaels, they have them for every holiday)
I just hot glued the coasters onto my twine leaving a few inches between each one. I used my hardwood floors as a guide. Make sure to leave a good amount of twine on either side to attach it wherever you want to hang your banner. It has been so dreary outside the last few days, so the lighting in my house was not great. I took my banner outside and tied it onto my Tiki torches. It actually looked super cute!
This is such an easy way to add quick holiday fun to your home. You could hang it in front of the window, on a mantle, entry table, or even on your front porch. The possibilities are endless!
Also, remember at the beginning of the month when I asked you to weigh in on the great pumpkin spray paint dilemma? I haven’t forgotten and I wanted to give you an update. Well, you guys voted and so I tried to spray paint my pumpkins a bright, glossy white. However, I left them outside to dry before applying a couple more coats and may have forgotten to check the weather. It rained all over my pumpkins!
They are probably salvageable with a couple more coats of spray paint, but it has been so dreary and gross when I’ve had the time to touch them up. So, it looks like I might just be painting them again next year! Oh well!
Hope you all have a great Halloween!! What is your favorite part about this spooky holiday? Carving pumpkins, costumes, haunted houses, parties, or eating candy? All of the above?
