This fun Halloween banner made from card stock is the perfect easy decoration. Make it with all ghosts, pumpkins or one of each, it’s up to you.
- Card stock paper white, black, orange, yellow, green, brown
- White gel pen for cat and black pen for monster
- Cord or string
- Tacky Glue and or Double stick tape
- Optional brown or black ink pad for owl
Start by cutting your triangles (with scissors or paper cutter), I used 8 1/2″ by 11″ card stock for each triangle. But the fun part is you can make this any size (larger or smaller) and make all or some of the characters!
Save all the scrap pieces!
Now for the fun, to make each one…so simple. For the ghost cut and glue two oval eyes or a shape you like.
For the candy corn, start with a white triangle, top with a piece of yellow, then orange, glue (or use double stick tape) in place then cut!
For the black cat, starting with the black triangle, cut and glue (or double stick tape) two ears on top (I made small triangles). Cut two white eyes, cut two small circles for center of eye, glue onto the triangle. Make an orange nose (any color) glue on, with a white gel pen draw the mouth and whiskers!
For the brown owl, he needs two ears ( I made small triangles), two white eyes with small black center, yellow long triangle nose and two brown wings for the side. For his wings I inked the edges so that detail would stand out!
The orange pumpkin needs a brown stem and one or two green leaves, glued to the top. Cut eyes, nose and mouth from black card stock and glue on.
The green monster, needs two white eyes with black center (any shape, I made squares), a black mouth, black hair and a black neck bolt cut and glue! For the stitch marks I used a black pen.
Lay out each triangle in the order you want for your banner and tape string or cording along back with a little space between each, and you are ready to hang the banner up!
