Halloween Banner DIY
With Halloween happening this month, I have tried to get more in the spirit of decorating for Halloween for my kids around the house. I typically just decorate for Fall and do all things Fall with pumpkins.
But this year I have added Halloween decor with it. Jackolanterns, witch’s hats and even this cute little banner I created last week for our coffee station.
And to add to it, I thought the wreath in my office that hangs on my barn door needs a little Halloween decor too. I created a DIY Halloween Banner. It is super simple and quick to make!

How to Make A Boo Halloween Banner
For this Halloween Banner DIY, I started off by making the stencil in my Silhouette Cameo machine. You can download the BOO SVG Cut file at the bottom of this post. All subscribers get access to my entire Resource Library. It is completely free to join, and all the files in the library are free to those members.
Once my banner stencil was cut, I cut 3 pieces of burlap ribbon. I placed on letter stencil onto each burlap piece.
Next, I painted the stencil with orange acrylic paint and let dry.
If you want to speed up the drying process you can blow dry with your hairdryer.
Removing the Stencils
Once the paint has fully dried, you can peel away the negative of the stencil. You can try to save it if you want to reuse it again. But since I used regular vinyl for this project, I just tossed it.
After my three burlap pieces were ready, I pulled out my jute twine and cut it to the desired length. I did not need it to be very long since it was going to be hanging over a wreath I have in my home year round.
I also wanted it to be able to be easy to move and take down once the Halloween Holiday is over.
Securing it All Together
I flipped over the letters and space them apart evenly. I didn’t really measure this, I just eye-balled it.
Then I laid my twine across the back and using my hot glue gun, I ran a bead of glue across the top and pushed over the top of the burlap.
Once the letters were all glued in place, I tied buffalo check ribbon to the in between sections of the letters and the outside edges.
I just love buffalo check and find that I am adding it everywhere this year. You can get this exact same spool of ribbon from here.
Make sure you get a pretty good amount. Once you start using the buffalo check you will want to use more around your home or even into the Winter Holidays. I know I have been.
After the ribbons are tied on it is complete! Use the banner around your home, or even make one for a friend.
Here is a quick video showing me making this banner!! It truly is simple and easy to make.
I just love this cute easy DIY Halloween Banner. What do you think?
