2. Using an X-Acto knife, cut out the skull image. Be sure to keep all the pieces­ (like the tiny nose and eyes). You will need these to complete the piece.

4. Brush on a thick coating of Amour Etch. Be careful to apply the cream to just the area being etched. Leave Armour Etch on for 5-10 minutes. Rinse the cream off under lukewarm water, then peel off all the contact paper and clean the glass.

1. Print and cut out the banner template along all the edges, and make tiny notches on both sides of the banner, on the front side where the guide lines are.

2. Flip the banner over and place a piece of double sided tape along the length of the banner, above the notches.

3. Fold the front of the banner to the back. This will create a tunnel for the dowel rod to fit through.

4. Tie yarn to both sides of the dowel rods. Add a tassel for extra flair.
