Today's Guest: Lil' Luna

Hi there!

My name is Kristyn, and I blog over at Lil' Luna!

I like to blog about all things good -
recipes, tutorials, crafts, tips, deals - you name it!

Right now I have The Great Pumpkin Series going on right now where all sorts of bloggers are showing you some Pumpkin Goodness. Come on over and check it out!

I don't know about all of you, but I LOVE this time of year.
I LIVE for the holidays.
Seriously - they make me giddy!

Well, as I was busting out some Holiday Decor I realized I needed to make a simple but fun bunting banner to hang from my entertainment center for Halloween. This is what I came up with.

So easy and fun!
Here is how you do it...

-Scrapbook Paper
-Ink Pad
-Sewing machine
-Glue Stick
-Hole Punch


1. Begin by deciding what shape you want your banner. I thought half circles would be great and just traced half a bowl for my scrapbook paper pattern. I also traced a slightly larger bowl for the cardstock pattern. Trace and cut out for your scrapbook paper and cardstock.

2. For an added vintage touch, distress the edges of your paper with a stamp pad.

3. You will then glue your scrapbook papers to their coordinating cardstock paper.

4. From there, sew a zig-zag stitch all the end of your scrapbook paper.

5. Hole punch the top sides of each half-circle, string with ribbon or tulle and hang. :)

What's great about this is I want to hang the banner all year long and have made papers that match my room decor. I'm also planning on making some red and green half-circles for when Christmas hits and will probably do the same for the other holidays. :)

I hope you like it!

Be sure to come on over to Lil' Luna and say hi! I'd love to have you!
