Chic and Scary Halloween Banner

For my Halloween Banner I repurposed those fabulous 4"x4" coasters. I covered them with GCD Solutions Black Widows paper from the Spooked collection. I cut the paper in 4" squares and used a corner rounder on the corners. I then used the XL Label Die from MyCreativeTime and cut them out in a solid pumpkin colored textured cardstock from my stash. The letters are cut from Cartridge Chip Decor at 3 inches and the black characters are all cut from Chic and Scary by Teresa Collins. I added googlie eyes to every character and coordinated the banner by adding a cornered spider web to each tile. I tied white tulle for the ghostly illusion between the tiles. I also outlined the letters in blue stickles to give a little pop and have it break up the orange and black. I can leave it as is for inside decor or use Mod Podge on the whole thing and it would be ok outside.

HALLOWEEN AND CHRISTMAS have the same amount of letters so I will likely repurpose this again and make a Christmas banner on the back.
