Why bring your potluck dessert to the party in plastic, when a simple Halloween mini-banner can make it festive? Today I’m showing you an easy way to dress up your dish, using a printable banner designed by the super-talented Jen Goode at 100 Directions.
Plus, my banner is part of a blog hop chock full of ideas using all of Jen’s free Halloween printables. For this banner, I used the smallest doll-sized banner from the Black & White Swirl collection (bottom, second from left).
After I cut out the banner pieces using micro-tipped scissors, I punched holes in the top corners of each triangle. My 1/16th punch was the ideal size for the mini-banner.
I used a large needle to thread orange craft pom-poms and the banner triangles onto black and white bakers’ twine. The needle goes easily through the center of the pom, and makes the threading of the twine through the small holes much smoother.
Once all my orange poms and mini-banner pieces were threaded onto the 2 lengths of bakers’ twine (as shown), I tied the banners to orange paper straws for an extra pop of color.
And there you have it, pastries with pizzazz! So much prettier than a plastic tray.
Thanks for stopping by to see my printable Halloween mini-banner!
Until next time…
