Halloween: Day #1- Happy*Halloween! Banner

I'll be kicking off our 13 Days of Halloween with this oober-cute and easy-peasy Happy*Halloween! banner:
I started off by figuring out how to fit the most triangles as possible onto my paper pack (from JoAnns, by the way). It ended up being about 3 1/4 across the top and 4 3/4 inches down...
Next step is to punch a 3-inch scallop per letter (16 for HAPPY*HALLOWEEN!) out of white cardstock and using black stickers, applied a letter per scallop ( I got a pack of stickers that contained both upper and lower case letters, giving me 2 banners per pack!)
Then using double-stick tape (high-tech, I know!) apply the scallops to the triangle pennants.
Punch holes in the two corners, and tie cute ribbon in between each pennant.
12 inch pieces for the 1st and last one, and 5 inch pieces to double knot and of course cut at an angle (way cuter at an angle!)
Hang, and enjoy! I think it would be awesome to find some double sided papers so it would look great from two different rooms over an archway... just a suggestion for next time.

My favorite thing about Halloween is the choosing of the costumes. I know what is going on in my child's life due to what they decide to be. I also hand out otter pops to all the trick or treaters and giggle when I see all the popsicle wrappers laying all over the neighborhood the next morning!
