October is moving right along and so is your time to put up your fall decorations. If you have’t all ready put up your Halloween and fall decor, now is the time to do it. While you’re at it, make this sparkling SPOOKY Halloween banner! This spooky gold foil Halloween banner was one of my favorite gold foil projects that I made for Studio 5— it turned out better than I envisioned.
This shiny and sparkly banner was super easy to make! The pennants are made out of canvas and I actually purchased two packages from Hobby Lobby all ready to go. I used orange Deco Foil for some shiny and spooky letters and hot glued it to some black and white baker’s twine for the finishing touch. The black and orange garland is actually Halloween filler (used in vases and jars) strung on baker’s twine. Let me share my tips to make this fun SPOOKY Halloween banner!
Orange Deco Foil
Spouncer foam brush
Letter Stencils that spell “SPOOKY”
Iron and ironing board
Hot Glue Gun and Gluesticks
Halloween Filler (foam glitter balls)
For the Halloween banner, we’ll start with the gold foil process.
- Using fabric glue, stencil on one of your letters onto a canvas pennant. Let glue sit for about 30 seconds, until it’s tacky.
- Cut a piece of Orange Deco Foil to fit the size of your letter. Place foil, color side up, on your stenciled letter. Press down lightly to stick in place.
- Cover with a piece of parchment paper and iron (wool/ silk setting) for 35 seconds moving in small circles with a little pressure.
- After the fabric has cooled, peel foil. You’ll be left with a beautiful unique foiled letter
- Repeat steps 1-5 for all letters in your banner.
- Hot glue the pennants to some baker’s twine, leaving ends for tying.
Next up is the glittery Halloween garland!
- Fold a piece of scotch tape over the end of your bakers twine and cut so that it will fit through an embroidery needle.
2. Thread the filler on your bakers twine in alternating colors and sizes.
