Have I got something for you crafty peeps!! It’s the latest free printable that I designed for HowDoesShe newsletter subscribers – a Halloween photo banner kit! You can use your own 4″x6″ photos, print out a few pieces from the kit, then mix and match to make your own totally custom banner. It’s super easy!

There are six patterned backgrounds to choose from, and each one comes in both horizontal and vertical format to suit any of your photos.

Then, there are a couple of pages of printable circles that you can use to label your photos with a date. I also designed a few circles that say “BOO!” and “Trick or Treat,” and there are some blanks in case you want to hand-write a caption or let your kids draw a spooky little picture!

To assemble the banner, the crafty ladies at HowDoesShe left a little bit of white space above each banner piece, folded it at the line, and then glued it over a length of trim. (The pom-poms they used are SO cute!)

The dates go all the way through 2019 so that your photo banner can grow each year.

To make the printable kit even more fun, there are also 4″x6″ letters and phrases that you can use in addition to – or in place of – your photos. You can spell “BOO!” or “Happy Halloween” in separate banner pieces. I also included some fun phrases that fit on a single banner piece, too!

When it comes to embellishments, trim, and add-ons, the sky’s the limit. I know some of you can’t wait to break out the glitter!! ; )

      Hi Jessica, Although I designed it, this printable belongs to HowDoesShe.com and it's their newsletter (not mine) that you need to sign up for. If you're having trouble getting on their newsletter you'll need to contact them. I hope this helps!
