Raise your hand if you love EASY Halloween decorating ideas. I mean, I love a super in-depth and complicated project as much as the next crafty lady, but sometimes you just need something you can whip up in 3 minutes flat and only a few bucks. This skull banner is the perfect way to do that.

I found these felt skulls at Dollar Tree so I picked up 3 white ones and 2 black along with a roll of orange ribbon.

At home I laid out the skulls and cut a piece of ribbon long enough to cover all of them. At this point you could hot glue the skulls onto the ribbon, but we’re going for super-speed crafting here, so I just clipped each one with a clothes pin. Then it’s easy to take apart later if I want to.

And that’s seriously it! Just find a place to hang it up and you’re done…party backdrop, over your front door, or on the fence. I actually don’t know how this would hold up in any rain, but it was certainly a great spot to take the pictures!

So I’m curious, do you usually end up doing really involved holiday projects or more fast and simple ones?
