And believe it or not, I had never spent much time on Matthew Mead's website until this weekend either. (I know, I know, I guess I live under a rock.) But then I discovered his Free Halloween Templates. Oh my, but I had fun. I downloaded a bunch...and I mean a BUNCH of stuff...I still have some waiting (so you may get yet another post of Halloween decorating ideas...my apologies in advance)! But I did get around to making this fun little banner. (and you KNOW I love a banner!)
I took this closeup hoping you could see that each flag is made of handwritten letter paper (downloaded from his site also). You can't tell very well, but it gives you an idea anyway. I combined three of his different templates to give the banner a more distinctive look...and I love the way it turned out!
And just so you can all see that I was telling the truth about painting the porch, here a couple of "after" photos. See this pinch of railing? It's the same spot as the photo in my previous post. Amazing what a little paint can do.
And Thanks to Pink and Green Mama for this lovely award! I'm supposed to add this text along with it...
