This No-Sew Spider and Witch Halloween Banner Tutorial is easy to put together in a few hours. It’s a fun addition to Halloween festivities and so easy my 7-year-old daughter made it with my supervision.
The Divine Miss M made this banner for the 2011 Utah State Fair and brought home a first-place ribbon. She made it from fabric (without a sewing machine); however, using the pattern, it works with scrapbooking paper for a banner in a jiffy!
