Halloween Fire Place Banner





I purchased this Martha Stewart clip art craft kit awhile back and I finally got around to opening it and I was pleasantly surprised. There are a lot of things you could create with this one kit. It comes with 6 sheets of fun Halloween craft paper and three fairly large pieces of clip art that could be embellished in a dozen different ways. I of course, made something that the kit was not intended for, I made a Halloween banner. The sheets of paper were the perfect size and it just inspired me to make a banner for the fire place. I encourage everyone to try to make one of their own, since it is so stinking easy and fun. The supplies needed are: craft paper, glue, glitter, pipe cleaners, and letter clip art which could be printed off the computer to save money. You could also use material in place of paper if that is what you have on hand.

  1. Cute! I've always wondered if those kits were worth buying.

    Got your question about the countertops...as for the durability, well, we'll just have to see! Here's what their website has to say about the durability:

    My mom has a friend who painted her countertops, first with a Gripper primer, then with regular latex paint, then with polyurethane and they have held up very well!

    I was originally inspired by this post (although I am not doing the "granite" look):
