Well, it's finally here! Our Happy Fall-i-Days online showcase event from REVERSE CONFETTI! This is the first day of our three day event to totally inspire you to take your Reverse Confetti supplies to the next level. You probably won't see any cards, but a TON of fun decor, party and entertaining ideas that are perfect for the season upon us. For the next three days, the Confetti Crew will be wowing y'all with those kinds of things, fitting for the next upcoming holidays--Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. At the end of this post, I'll have a link list that you can use to see all the designer's projects.
Although I don't have a fireplace mantle, and I haven't yet dragged all my Halloween decor out, I hung this banner in my entryway. It's really a blank wall for now, but it's actually above an entry table and will add to the "wow" factor when guests walk in. I'll be sure and post a fully decorated picture on Facebook and Instagram when I'm done sprucing it up!
I started with some cloth "paper" with a sturdy backing on it (from Michael's) and cut it into the triangle shapes using a template I found online. I then cut the letters from my Silhouette in order to get the correct size, and embellished them with several layers of stickles, glass glitter and glossy accents (did y'all know that the glossy accents tarnishes glass glitter and makes it really shabby looking? So cool!)
Once all that was ready, I spritzed some cheesecloth with some Heidi Swapp black shine spray, so that it would be a cool layer on each of the banner pieces. While it was drying, I started working my REVERSE CONFETTI magic and continued getting all my pieces together.
Crazy as it sounds, there is no stamping on this project, only die cutting, so that made it fairly easy and very repetitive for each piece (a good idea when making a banner!).
Each banner piece uses the new THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts as its "base" for the lettering and decorations, as I thought it would be good to do "paper to paper" for the details. The little pinked circle at the top of each one is from the WINNING Confetti Cuts set with just a 5/8" circle and star punched atop that and a brad.
The two end pieces use the PUMPKIN PATCH Confetti Cuts for the pumpkins and I added the crow from the older CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts and all pieces have the larger WREATH Confetti Cuts cut from black to enhance each letter/icon.
Next came the fun part of putting it together, stringing it onto my jute cording, and tying all the ribbons on.
Once that was done, I couldn't help myself but to add just one more fun touch--the TASSEL Confetti Cuts from some black and white polkadot tissue paper. They look so spooky and spider-y (it's a word today), don't they!?!
So what did y'all think? I can't say that this project only took me a few minutes to make, but the time and effort put into it totally paid off--I LOVE IT!! Happy Halloween!
