FREE exclusive SpOOky Banner

If you don’t know by now let me tell you a little secret…

I LOVE photos. I love to take them and I love to display them.  I especially love displaying photos of my kids…I know, what mom doesn’t? That is why you are going to LOVE this next set of exclusive printables created by chickabug. And just in time for Halloween!

FREE exclusive SpOOky Banner

I have been displaying past photos of my kids dressed up in their halloween costumes for a few years now and have been meaning to share this idea with you because it is so fun.

I photoshop the year right on the picture and put them out as a Halloween decoration.  I was trying to figure out how people that don’t have photoshop could do something similar when it hit me…chickabug and printables!

Gather all your adorable halloween pictures, I know you have them!  Or if you are like me, they are on your computer so print them out (4×6 size). Look through all the patterns from the printable set, find the ones you like an that fit the orientation of your picture (horizontal or vertical), cut them out and paste your photos, then paste on the year circle so you know which Halloween it was.

So easy and festive!

Don’t have pictures to display? No problem! Heather also created some fun words you can print and display. Here is one of them.

I just printed the background and then the letters. Then I cut them out (leave the top white and just fold it back in order to hang), pasted them together and hung them over some trim. I know most of you are a lot more crafty and are already thinking about how you will bling these out! You can dress them up all you want with ribbon, tags, stickers, stamps, glitter, etc. or just print and hang as I did. Either way they will be adorable!

      Hi, I downloaded your halloween banner printable and it's so cute but I'm having a slight problem with it. It's not printing in the correct color. I replaced my ink cartridges and I printed a couple of other printables from you and they printed normal. The other printables that I checked were the Christmas banner and the Halloween favor box and the colors are fine with those but the Halloween banner keeps printing in red and blue instead of orange and black. I'm going to save the red and blue ones for 4th of July instead of throwing them out but I really want to print the correct colors. It's in orange and black on my computer screen and in the print preview but it's just not printing. Have you had this problem before?

      Thank you,
      Amber Detzler

          I have seen others with this problem but see no solution....mine is printing the wrong colors! I went out and bought new ink and that didn't fix it! Is there a way to fix this? Thanks! (I am itching to get this hung soon so we can enjoy these precious banner for the rest of the month :)

      I love the Halloween banner kit! Thank you for sharing!

      I knew I wanted to make it so I pinned it over two months ago when I saw it. After printing all of my pictures and banners, I realized that there is no black Y... and no black W. :(

      I really wanted all of the letters to be black. At first glance it appeared that each letter was available in black and orange. Is there any way to make those two letters black?

      Is there an "editable" version of the banner kit?
    25. October 19th, 2012 at 12:53 am
      Wilanie says:
      Thank you so much for sharing! I'm having the same issue as another follower mentioned. The ink is printing in blue and red rather than orange and black. Do you have any suggestions?
