Hollywood Halloween Trivia Banner

110 Bloggers put their talents together to come up with 110 Halloween ideas!  Check out and check out the link at the bottom of this post to "link up"!

Come check out my Hollywood Halloween Trivia Banner!
I love Halloween!  
I love the decorations, the costumes, the spooky themes and I love the classic scary movies!

I remember babysitting as a kid when the movie "When a Stranger Calls" came out.  
Remember those chilling words?
"Jill, Jill.  We traced the call!  It's coming from inside the house!  Do you hear me?  It's coming from inside the house!  You need to get out!  Jill?"   

Scared me to death.  For years!

Because it's always a challenge to come up with unique games for your seasonal parties I thought I'd share a crafty banner/trivia game which has dual purpose.  
1) Party Decor and 2) Entertainment
With my love of the old classic movies and my desire to be just a tiny bit scared, I found some trivia questions on the web and printed pictures to go with the questions.

I've included several trivia questions below.  Print off a set of questions for your guests or search out your own based on your favorite movies.  Hand out prizes to the winners who guess the most answers right. 

Decorating a fun banner makes this game extra fun and you it can hang anywhere...your mantel, staircase or wall...

($1 bins at Target)
Old Movie Prints
(found on the internet, print off in black & white 5x7)
Crepe Paper
Embellishments by My Mind's Eye and Target 
Hazel & Ruby Tissue Paper
Google "Classic Scary Movies" for trivia questions or use the ones I provided below

Remember what movie these twins made their debut?  I printed mine in a 5x7 size and then trimmed the pictures down from there.  I did a variety of sizes to give it interest.

 Take your crepe paper and cut into half inch long can buy it already trimmed on the edges or you can cut it this way.

Glue the strips to the back of the movie cards using a glue gun

 I love the Tim Holtz glitter ribbon for trimming the inside edge

I used the Tim Holtz little black letters I found at JoAnne's
Add quotes from the movie to your embellishments

 My Mind's Eye Embellishments were used to add layers and interest

 Once the movie card is trimmed in crepe paper, turn it around and add letters, embellishment and begin layering for a spooky effect...anything works, just go for it!

I love the tissue paper by Hazel & Ruby
Cut it into strips, and add twine and ribbon and attach to your garland

Made some trim pieces to add to the banner

Use your hole punch and put a hole in each corner

 Run your twine through the back of each card and then add your tissue paper trim

 This is your chance to get creative...anything goes here!

And there you have it!  Can't you just hear his voice?  "Hello there Clarice"
