Looking for an easy way to add a touch of Halloween to your home- create banners to decorate your home. Scrapbooking paper comes in so many colors and patterns for Halloween the possibilities are endless.
I'm going to share how to make 3 spooky, fun, and cute Halloween banners. I made these banners using my Cricut Explore in Design Space, but if you don't have one just print and trace the banner shapes, print letters or use alphabet stickers and embellishments. I love making banners and it's one of the reasons I wanted a Cricut.
I wanted to make 3 banners that are completely different for Halloween. I did use the typical pennant shape because it makes great banners, but I wanted to share other fun ways to create banners. For example we love pumpkins so I created the Happy Halloween Banner on pumpkins.
One trick I have learned is to use the 3D Foam Squares on banners because it give it an amazing pop to the banner.

3d Foam Squares
- Pennant Shape in Candy Corn Paper
- Make circles and attach with 3D Foam Squares to pennant
- Attach the letters using the EK Tools Zig Memory System 2-Way Squeeze and Roll Glue Pen, New Package
- String the pennant and tie ribbon between the pennant
Your Trick or Treat Banner is all set to add cute Halloween charm to your home.
- Square label to make the banner, I used the striped paper and black card stock (I love the colors of the striped paper)
- Attach card stock with the 3L Repositionable Permanent Mounting Squares, 1/2-Inch x 1/2-Inch, 1000pk, White
- Use the 3L Scrapbook Adhesive Permanent Pre-Cut 3D Foam Squares, Mixed Variety, 217pk, White to add the letters and the images. My son said the one ghost is just to spooky for him (the 2nd ghost in pictures), but he likes the rest of the banner.
- Hole punch the squares and string it on the orange jute and it's ready to decorate your home!
- Make 14 pumpkins for the banner
- Add the letters for Happy Halloween in black
- String the banner and tie ribbon between the letters (if you want to)
All of these banners are great for decorating your home, your classroom, or for a party. The easiest way to find paper that matches is to buy a pad of Halloween Paper because matching paper can take forever. I could spend hours matching paper and still not decide, I always seem to be missing that perfect shade. Paper Crafters know what I mean.
If you use a Cricut I love the https://www.printablecuttablecreatables.com for SVG, they have adorable free ones that you can use for personal and limited commercial use. That's where I found the "spooky ghost" and the jack o'lantern on the Boo Banner.
Happy Banner Making! Happy Halloween! I would love to see your banner creations!
