DIY Decorating
By Jennifer Schroeder
 
 
 
 
 
Still decorating for Halloween? Here's a simple, inexpensive (and super-cute!) banner tutorial that will have your house looking festive in no time at all. Don't sew? Just replace thread and needle for hot glue, and you can join in the fun too!

Supplies you'll need:
felt (various colors)
thread or hot glue gun
ribbon
stuffing 

 
 
Step 1: Make a template for each of the shapes you want. I made a pumpkin, candy corn, bat and ghost. If you don't want to freehand it, you can find many templates online.
 
 
Step 2: Cut out the shapes by tracing around your template with a pen. Make sure to cut two at a time so you have a front and back. Sew eyes on, then sew together, making sure to leave a 1-inch opening to stuff.
 
 
Step 3: Stuff your shapes then sew closed.
 
 
Step 4: Sew your shapes to your ribbon. You can glue on little bows to up the cuteness and cover up your seams.
 
 
Now step back and enjoy your handiwork. You are finished!
