Halloween Icon Banner DIY

I love horror movies, especially the iconic classics. Scream, Nightmare on Elm Street, they’re all amazing. To celebrate the genre and Halloween, I made a horror movie icon banner to decorate our mantel.

I made this project with my Cricut, but if you don’t have one – don’t fret. Keep scrolling for the non-Cricut instructions to make your very own.


Here’s what you will need:

  • Black and white card stock
  • Banner shape
  • Glue
  • String, yarn, or ribbon

Here are the steps:

  • Go online and find black and white images of the horror icons
  • Load into the design space and edit your cut lines
  • Cut the banner shape
  • Glue the weeded icons onto the banner
  • Punch 2 holes into each banner
  • String together with string, ribbon, or yarn

That’s it – it’s a very easy craft to make. It took the length of an old school horror movie! This DIY is a great conversation piece and decoration. Your family and friends will definitely want you to make one!
