This Halloween banner is made using scrapbook paper I already had on hand and using the Silhouette to cut each piece out helped me put it all together in no time.

Out of all the decorations I have in storage, I have the most Halloween decorations. It’s such a fun holiday to decorate for and there are so many great crafts and DIY projects you can do to really make it fit your style. Banners are an easy way to fill up a space or just add a little extra something that brings it all together. Plus they are easy to put up, take down and store.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Halloween banner:
- coordinating scrapbook paper
- adhesive (double sided tape, scrapbook corners, Glue Dots, etc)
- baker’s twine
- scissors or paper trimmer
- Silhouette Cameo or other cutting machine
- hole punch
First, pick out your scrapbook paper.
Then, grab this free SVG cut file and upload the file to your design studio.
Place each piece of paper on your cutting mat and load it into your machine. Repeat this process as many times as needed to cut out the desired number of banner pieces. For my banner, I cut multiple pieces from each piece of paper. Because they are double sided, I can flip them over to create a pattern.
Once all your pieces are cut, arrange them in the order you want. You can leave the banner as is with just the design of the scrapbook paper you chose or you can add other embellishments on top, such as letters, gems, spiders, etc. I had a piece of paper that was already blocked out with different designs, perfect to just cut out and attach to each banner piece.
After the banner looks the way you want, punch a hole in each corner of the banner about 1/2″ down and over. Then string the baker’s twine through the holes.
*PRO TIP* Wrap a small piece of tape around the end of the baker’s twine to keep it from fraying as you string it through the holes.
Hang your new Halloween banner on the wall, your mantle, in the window, or anywhere else you want to add a little Halloween fun.
While I am showing you a Halloween version of this banner, you can obviously create one for any event, holiday or that matches your home year round. I love that I was able to use scraps to create this fun Halloween banner to add to my ever growing collection of decor. It is an easy craft to do with a group of people that doesn’t take a lot of time or skill, so everyone can create this banner and end up with a decoration they are happy with!
