In our previous post, we detailed decorations for a do-it-yourself Halloween themed mantle. To keep up the holiday spirit this fall, we’re going to keep it going, Halloween DIY style!
Today we’re showcasing a “spook-tacular” DIY project for your Halloween décor. We love to incorporate party supplies into our holiday decorating and these two creations do that “boo-tifully.” Ruffled crepe paper streamers transform ordinary die cut shapes and paper maché cones into unique Halloween pieces.
Let’s start with the Boo Banner. Pre-printed die cut circles are the perfect base for ruffled edges and a glue stick is all you need to adhere the crepe paper down.
Before adding the ruffle, back each die cut circle with a white cardstock mat for added impact.
The ruffling process is not complicated. First, apply glue along the edge of a small section of the circle. Next, place streamer onto glue and while moving around edge use a combination of scrunching and gathering to create the desired ruffle effect. TIP: periodically turn circle over and check for ruffle length evenness.
Once all the circles are ruffled, hot glue additional cardstock circles to the backs for a more polished look. Small paper straw lengths hot glued to the circle backs allow for easier movement and placement when hanging.
Be sure to look at how we used this decor piece to decorate a Halloween themed fireplace mantle and for all your Halloween party, costume and décor needs. Show us your cool and spooky pics with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
