I'm so happy to announce that I am part of this fabulous Halloween Bash Blog Hop! Don't you love having all of these awesome bloggers and their projects in one place? I can't get over how creative everyone is!

Today, I'm bringing you a tutorial on how to make a super simple DIY wood pennant banner for your fireplace that is Halloween themed. This project couldn't be any easier. It's also inexpensive, fast and super cute!

To make this cutie, I started with these inexpensive precut triangles from Michael's craft store. I believe they were 79 cents a piece, plus 40% off. I purchased a bunch last spring. I love that they had the holes drilled and everything!

I used my cricut to cut out triangles that were slightly smaller than the wooden triangles. I also used a scallop edge on them because I thought that added a nice touch. The tan and black polka dot paper was so cute!

I used orange card stock to cut out the letters to spell HALLOWEEN. I then glued the paper onto the wood and then the letters on top. I used plain old Elmers glue, but in order to make sure they stuck and that there were no bumps or curling,  I placed a heavy book over them for about a half hour.

While the triangles were drying, I got to work on this guy. I found the spider and the web on Lori Whitlock's Webpage. She has some of my most favorite SVG's! I modified her design to get rid of the eyes and to just cut the shape of the spider. I then glued googlie eyes on him!
I ran regular twine through the letters and didn't even have to knot them off. The web was just woven through the twine as well.
For the spider, I merely folded it over and used scotch tape. I think this whole project took less than 30 minutes from start to finish. I really like how cute it looks on our mantle.

It wasn't easy to get a photo of though! My kiddos prefer fun and happy fall themed decorations so we tried to make it kid friendly and cute too boot. What do you think?
