Sarah from Makin' Projiks created these adorable medallions from Halloween coasters, crepe paper, and stickers, and strung them into a great banner. I love the use of simple materials to make such a festive garland. (Plus, if you're a longtime DSC fan, you'll know I love me some garlands). The concept of these medallions is not limited to Halloween or even to banners. You can use these simple materials to make medallions for any occasion or holiday (including birthdays, showers, etc.), and you can use the medallions by themselves (award ribbons?), as decorations on other items, or as shown, in banner form. Thanks to my friend Susan for the tip! [click here for original project] [bonus: and here are instructions for crepe paper ruffles]

Project Estimate:

  • Pack of chipboard coasters, $1 and up
  • Crepe paper, $1
  • Stickers, $1 and up
  • Glue, on hand

Total: $3 and up
