How to Make the Perfect Halloween BOO Banner Accented with Wicked Bows
Time for Halloween decorations—especially ones that young artists can create or help to create. Here’s a fun Halloween BOO banner that’s highlighted with easy-to-make bows created using the Mini Bowdabra.
Here are the supplies that you’ll need for the Halloween BOO Banner:
For the banner:
One 8½” x 11″ sheet black cardstock for the letters
One 8½” x 11″ sheet orange cardstock for the pumpkin banner shapes
Fold the 15″ bow wire in half and put it in the Mini Bowdabra. Tuck the ends of the wire under the Mini Bowdabra to keep them out of the way.
Next, scrunch the tulle into the Mini Bowdabra with the narrow end parallel to the Bowdabra base.
Layer the grosgrain and glitter ribbons on top of the tulle.
Next, layer the mesh ribbon on top of the ribbons already in the Mini Bowdabra.
Compress the ribbons with the Mini Bowdabra wand.
With the ribbons still in the Mini Bowdabra, pass the wire ends through the loop, and tighten. Bring the wires to the back side of the bow and tie a knot. Leave the wire ends long.
Fluff the bow and arrange individual ribbons. Set the bows aside while we make the banner.
Now, let’s make the banner:
Print the Pumpkin BannerTemplate on orange cardstock and cut out the shapes. Print theBOO text template, cut out each template letter, trace onto black cardstock, and cut the letters from the cardstock.
Adhere the letters to the banners with liquid adhesive or double-sided tape.
Tie the letters together with the short lengths of twine or narrow ribbon.
Using the bow wires, tie a bow to each end of the Halloween BOO banner. Use the bow wire ends to tie the banner in place.
