Here is a picture of my fireplace mantel sporting the new Spooky Banner I created using the new Build A Banner Simply Created Kit (item # 133507) and the coordinating Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit (item # 132698). The banner couldn’t have been easier to make; a short learning curve for me try both spritzing and sponging ( I ultimately opted for the sponging).
The banner kit contains 18 canvas pennants in 3 shapes, 3 background stencils (stripes, dots & chevron patterns), a stencil mask and alphabet stencils plus jute for hanging and a spritzer tool. Because I opted for the sponging, the drying time was minimal meaning I could apply the colored background pattern and the text without waiting. The accessory kit made decorating the banner a snap. The kits are designed to include everything you need, just add ink and adhesives! It could not be simplier.
I opted to use a few things on mine that weren’t in the kit, and likewise, didn’t use a few things that were, to make the banner ‘mine’ although I did try to stay as close to the banner shown on pages 4 & 5 of the Holiday Catalog to show how easy it is to create that.
The close-ups show you the rosette and pre-printed and glitter die-cut pieces that come with the accessory kit. Are you digging the black Vintage Designer Faceted Buttons? They are exclusive to this kit.
Since the kit contains 18 pennants, I will be able to make a banner for Thanksgiving and Christmas, in addition to this Halloween banner, from just one kit!
