Halloween Banner!

We are sooooo in the Halloween mood around our house!  We got all of the decorations out today and had a ton of fun deciding where to put things and turning on the light-up things.  I think the kids' favorite part is putting all the window clings on the windows and mirrors.

I recently saw this awesome homemade Halloween banner at Organize and Decorate Everything.  I simply fell in love with it!  I showed it to my kids who were as excited about it as I was.  So we made our own!

Ours isn't nearly as pretty as the original one that Leanne made.  But interesting things happen when kids ages 8, 6, 4, 3, and 1 are turned loose with markers, paper, and glue.  Of course, Mama helped out the little ones a bit, and I cut most of the triangles out (can you pick out the one my daughter cut out herself?).  Some of them got turned in wonky directions, but they're all fun!

Here's a ghost, some unknown one-year-old creation, and Frankenstein:

A jack-o-lantern, an owl, and a vampire:

Another unidentified one-year-old creation, a candy corn, and a spider:

A mummy, a ghost, and a werewolf:

Another candy corn, another jack-o-lantern, and another vampire (sorry for the blurriness).

I love the ideas the kids came up with!!  It was so much fun and so easy.  What a great way to spend a rainy morning!

  1. I think I forgot to tell you that I put your banner on my blog a couple weeks ago. Thanks for sending me the picture. It turned out so cute and it's so special that all your kids helped. I love that even the little ones made some. Have a great day!
