How to make a "BOO" banner

For Halloween I wanted to add a little magic to Lux's bedroom so I made her a little "BOO" banner! Heres how you can make one too!

You'll need:

  • Cream or white cotton fabric
  • Black embroidery thread
  • Embroidery Ring  
  • Short dowling rod
  • Black and orange pompom trimming
  • Scissors
  • Pencil 

Cut out your banner shape and draw your "BOO" text as a guide line for stitching. I used a simple back stitch that doesn't take long to do and once your finished doing each letter tie a knot in the thread to finish it off.

Sew over the edges and flip over your banner and to sew in your short dowling rod.

Pin the black and orange pompom trim together to the bottom of your banner and stitch into place.

With your scissor score into the end of the dowling rod to create a little grove so that when you tie on the black thread to hang the banner it shouldn't slip off, you can also use a dab of glue just to be sure.

There you have it! You very own tasteful BOO banner that you can get out every Halloween!

You could also stitch other spooky messages like Trick or Treat, Happy Halloween or Something Wicked this way comes! Get crafty this Halloween!
