Cut a 30 inch length of Jute. Tie a knot at ends leaving a loop at each end for hanging. Middle section between knots should measure 24 inches. Tear fabrics into strips and cut Tulle into strips (1/2 - 3/4 inches wide). Cut fabric and tulle strips and fun fur yarns into 5 inch lengths. Tie numerous 5 inch strips around jute to fill the center 24 inches to make a fluffy froo froo banner.

Cover two House Die Cuts with vintage text using a glue stick and cut out. Use an exacto knife for small spaces like the doors and windows. Rub brown ink pad all over the house die cut. Go around edges with black sharpie.

Cut mat board base for center piece to 2.5 x 3.5. Cover in vintage text. Attach a PID background transparency (Transparency sheet 292) with a small black brad in each corner. Glue a scrap of text to a scrap of mat board and stamp the letters....B O O, cut out each letter, highlight with brown ink, and edge each letter tile with black sharpie. Cut out little Halloween sweetie (PID Image Sheet 313) and glue to background along with B O O tiles. Sew 2 2.5 inch lengths ring chain to the black felt cut to 2.25 x 3.25 with black thread. Glue felt to back of the center piece using a white/tacky glue. Attach chain to center of froo froo banner. Tie a thin strip (scrap) of torn orange fabric around piece with a simple knot.

Center two House Die Cuts on either side of the center piece on the froo froo banner. Punch two holes in die cut using a clear button. Sew on the buttons with Embroidery floss through froo froo banner.
