Halloween Banner Bunting

Since I made my great nieces birthday buntings I have had all sorts of plans for more buntings.  Halloween is an obvious occasion because of all the fun fabrics you can find this time of the year.
I used some fabrics I had...and I added a special zing to the bunting!
I had some bright orange flannel fabric and I had some iron on letters that I used for the birthday buntings....
I spelled out Batty on one banner and Boo on another. These I just cut the triangles and didn't back them since their use will be limited!
I used mummies, bats, spiders, candy corn, jack-o-lanterns, black cats fabrics--all the usual Halloweeny (spell check tells me that Halloweeny is not a real word, but I know better!) symbols.
I used 3 yards of fleece binding in yellow (25 cents at WalMart clearance several years ago) to bind the top of the triangles. 
Pretty spooky, huh?
