One of the last projects we designed for our Halloween block party is this fun DIY Hocus Pocus Inspired Lawn Decor Banner. We chose the phrase from the song from the movie to welcome the children to our party!

“Come Little Children” is the song that Sarah sings in the movie and it’s a fun phrase to use to go along with our other Hocus Pocus decor.
DIY Hocus Pocus Banner Lawn Decor
Supplies Used to Make Hocus Pocus Banner for Halloween
- Three 8 x 10 Swallow Tail Burlap Banner
- Cricut Air Explore 2
- Weeding Tools
- Transfer Paper
- Wood Stakes
These burlap banners are great for lots of diy projects. They are large enough that that lettering placed on them can be seen from a distance if you want to use them for lawn decor. There is an ample amount of jute string to space each of the five panels out.
Designing the Banner in Cricut Design Space
I used a font called AR Delaney that I downloaded from fontzone. It’s a cute font for the banner. I resized the letters to fit one on each panel.
The witch silhouette can be found in Cricut Design Space. I resized the graphic to fit on a panel and used it as a spacer between the words on the banner.
Using transfer paper and the Cricut scraper, the letters and the witches were attached to the burlap. I’ve found that vinyl adheres well to fabric if the fabric is going to stay flat.
I used the scraper to make sure there were no bubbles in the vinyl.
Using the witch as a spacer helps to break up the words in the phrase so that it’s easy to read. Plus, at Halloween, who doesn’t want to add witches wherever you can?
Adding the Banner to Stakes
Gloria had these wood stakes on hand for a project that she’ll be working on soon, but in the meantime, we put them to use for the Hocus Pocus Banner. The jute string is tied around the stakes securely.
Even as we were putting the banner up, lots of neighbors were driving by and taking closer looks. Gloria’s next door neighbors who, along with Gloria, are dressing as the Sanderson Sisters, loved it.
Hopefully, everyone in the neighborhood is familiar with the song from the movie. We can’t wait for Halloween to arrive to have fun with all of the Hocus Pocus projects!
