A Banner Halloween!

Well, actually -  it's a banner FOR Halloween!  
I recently received these cool burlap triangle banners from Pouch Mart to play with (they send me things and I make things with them and post them - pretty cool deal!)

So I took three of the banners and decorated them with triangles of patterned paper layered to black card stock.  I used the same Bloomers ribbon across the top of all three.  I die cut ghosts and bats - adding rhinestone eyes to them
The letters are Black Glitter Thickers.  
I die cut the dangling spider from Memory Box and just put a dab of glue on the banner ties and attached the web piece -  they look so real don't they??!! Yuck!

I tied black and orange wrinkled seam tape around the knots where I tied the banners together.  I let the banner rope ties just hang down for added 'spooky' effect!
I hung this in my dining room window to take the picture since I had hooks there already from some previous drapes and I think I'll leave it there since it looks so spooky cute!
Well, cancel that -  I just sold this at my church fair - and  I miss it hanging on my window already!  Guess I'll have to whip up another one!
