The DIY Spooky Flag Banner

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  I love the cool crisp air, spooky decor, and most importantly dressing up!  When it comes to Halloween decor, I like to keep things kind of simple but fun.  Flag banners are big this year, so I knew I wanted to grace my mantle with one this Halloween!

Items needed:

  • SoSoft Fabric Acrylics 1oz - Tangerine
  • Six (6) canvas flags
  • Printed letters

Instructions:

Start by printing out the word "spooky".  I used the font "Spooky Magic" in size 300, which I download for free from Fontspace.com

Cut the letters into separate sections.

Flip the letters over and paint their backs in the black fabric paint.

Lay the letters down on the canvas flags and press down so that the paint transfers.  Use the paint brush to fill in any areas that didn't transfer.

Use the orange fabric paint to add dots to the flags for a little more fun!
