Halloween Boo Banner

I just adore the fall season.  There is something about the crispness of the air, the spectacular Michigan color show and the perfect temperature that really inspires me.  Making fall and Halloween inspired crafts is always fun too.  I made this "Boo Banner" for Alpha Stamps and it certainly has a fall feel.

Using the mini Halloween kit paper as the background, I layered medallions to create what I would consider a classic banner look.

Instead of using my typical inks to darken the edges, this time I used black acrylic paint.  I wanted to get an extra grungy look and I feel this was a good tactic to achieve this.

Each medallion was backed with some old lace. I simply bundled it up in a pleasing fashion and then added a few staples before hot gluing.

I was also pleased to be able to use an old piece of chain to extend my piece. I am always happy to be able to use up something in my stash.
I hope you enjoyed this simple project that can really be made for any season.
