Paper Treats!

Time for some thursday fun! As usual, I'm join all the cool kids at Kimba's DIY Day Party and Gina's Transformation Thursday party. I'm also having a givaway this week in celebration of my 100th post. Be sure to put your name in the hat by midnight on Friday!



I know it's still September, but I caved and put up one tiny Halloween decoration over the weekend.



I always like to do something a little campy and vintage looking in the kitchen for holidays, so when I stumbled upon these cute banner templates at The Toy Maker, I just couldn't resist!

My family never really did Halloween, so these are about as spooky as I get!



I made my banner out of construction paper, but you could use felt if you wanted something a little more sturdy.



Not feeling a banner? You could use these templates on luminary bags leading up to your door. Or, how about as a really cute applique pattern for a child's shirt? You could even hang one in each window with an electric candle shinning behind for an eerie glow.



The owl is hands down my favorite - big surprise there! Which one do you dig the most?

Those turned out great. I like them all but would have to choose the owl too. I'm going to check out those templates. Thanks!

So, so cute!
Cutting them out looks time consuming...
I might have to work on some while I watch tv one night. I love the owl, too!

Those are great! And the owl would work for all of fall, not just Halloween.
