Let's make an Easy Banner - The Magic Onions

Let’s make an Easy Banner

I hope you all had a super fun Halloween. We did… Kitty enjoyed being a ‘scary’ witch and Teddy loved being Puff the Magic Dragon. Lots of candy was collected and, yes, the Pumpkin Fairy did come in the night and whisk it all away. In its stead, she left Kitty a gorgeously warm furry jacket and a sweet porcelain candle holder and she left Teddy a knight and battle horse. They were both utterly delighted.

Today we made a banner in Autumn colors. As you know by now, I love easy crafts the best… this is no exception.

All we needed was;
Autumn colored paper,

We cut the Autumn colored paper into triangles.

Teddy cut the desired length of ribbon.

We folded about half an inch of each triangle over.

And cut off the protruding point.

We threaded the ribbon under the fold…

And stapled it to the paper triangle.

Repeat with each colorful paper triangle and… Voila! Your banner is complete!

Our living room looks wonderfully festive and we await Thanksgiving eagerly!
Blessings and magic,
