Happy late Halloween! Since Halloween fabric is likely now in the bottom of the sale bin at the fabric shop, this is a great project to whip out before the holidaze. I bought the fabric last year, yes, last year. Washed it and neatly put it away. Fast forward to Sunday afternoon this week. I used one package of bias tape and cut my three fabrics into rectangles 7″ x 4″. I sewed them about an inch to an inch and a half apart. I sewed the ends of the bias tape into loops for easy hanging. I double sided mine – so each flag is actually two pieces of fabric, only joined at the top. I liked how this gave movement to the banner and it made it so I can hang it in a window or doorway and appreciate it from either side. The spiderweb fabric is actually glittery and that wound up being a nice effect in twilight on Halloween.
These easy banners are online in many different forms for just about every holiday. My goal was to make a seasonal decoration that was reusable, washable, and indoor-outdoor. Between this and my new felted pumpkin, my home is definitely feeling very festive this fall.
