I was inspired to make some Halloween Bunting using the Funky Fossil Designs "Crooked Webs" stencil.

I used five shades of Distress Oxide Inks through the stencil to create the pennants:  Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire, Twisted Citron and Carved Pumpkin.

I die cut black discs and yellow letters in cardstock.

I cut the stencil shapes to the desired size and shape and mounted them onto black card to make the colours pop more.

I then stuck the yellow letters on to the black discs, and then onto the point of the pennant.  I added the plastic spiders using a small blob of silicon type glue.  Because they stand proud of the card base, they look incredibly realistic in real life, even casting a shadow.

Finally, I punched small holes in each corner of the pennant, adding a small bit of double sided sticky tape to the middle of the back and then threaded ribbon through, sticking the ribbon to the tape on each piece to each flag didn't move.
