Good morning crafty friends! It is blog hopping time with The Ribbon Resource and I am excited to share another Halloween project with you this morning. Half of the Ribbonistas have great projects to share with you today, and then we have a whole new set for tomorrow! There’s a little cute, there’s a little spook and there is a whole lot of crafty fun!
If you’ve ever stopped by ScrappyCanuck Studios before, you will know that I love to craft with bright and bold colours. Halloween crafts don’t always fall into this category, but this fun little banner certainly does. Inspired by candy corn, I simply took a plane white Artful Accents banner that I actually got from May Arts Ribbon (the wholesale sister site to Ribbon Resource) and got out my trusty acrylic paints for the colour blocks (each section is 2″ wide). Once it dried, I cut 4″ pieces of a variety of yellow, orange and white ribbons to tie along the top edge for some texture. It was that simple!
Now, I have to tell you that critique #1 came from my six year old who feels like the candy corns should have smiley faces on them. She had her marker in hand and was ready to make the additions as soon as I hung it up (perhaps it is the influence of Shopkins in her life). I actually think it’s a pretty cute idea – what do you think?
Anyway, if you haven’t had a chance to see all the projects today, make sure you pop on over to the Ribbon Resource blog, and then off to each of the Ribbonistas’ blogs for all the details. The Ribbon Lady is giving away two gift cards for the store to those of you that have the time to comment – we always love to hear what you think of the projects. Here is today’s line-up:
