How to Make Great Kids' Halloween Decorations:

Halloween Banner:

- Hang differently colored Halloween printables along the wall or window like flags, using colored string or ribbon and pegs or paper clips.

- Alternate with long streamers and triangles cut from crepe paper or recycled plastic bags.

- Choose colors to harmonize or contrast with the colors in your Halloween designs - red, yellow and blue (the Primary colors) or black and white will look fantastic.

- Finish off the ends of your Halloween Banner with 2 or 3 balloons, and several long streamers.
