halloween pennant banner

with the upcoming halloween party, i have started to create a bit here and there!  i have been wanting to make a banner...and came up with this.  our theme is somewhat centered around i figured this would be appropriate ;)

it's kinda hard to get it all in one shot.  this was the best i could do...
i made each piece out of card stock, cardboard letters, stamps and paint and hung them up on a long string with mini clothes pins...

whooo goes there?  that would be owl talk. haha ;)
then i attached ribbon sporadically in between...(everything has to have ribbon ;) ).  fairly simple, yet festive. :)
ella wanted to help, so while i was creating mine..she was busy at work creating hers.  and we hung it up in her room.  too cute.
she loved the paint and stamps...lots of stars...

she mixed up a little bit of everything to create her masterpiece.
