Fun, reversible FIESTA banner with 5 penants. The faux "papel picado" or little blue, red, orange, and yellow banners on the larger fiesta banner, as well as the meshy backing on banner one are made out of mesh placemats (2 for a dollar at Dollar Tree). The skulls are from a kid's camp craft set of skulls and crossbones(I cut off the bones). The colorful sugar skull is a common decoration in Mexico, and a more edgy than maracas and sombreros. The word "fiesta" is from the same Dollar Tree napkins I used to make my Modpodged patio decorations in a past post. Brrrrrrryahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Ahem....that was my Mexican happy yell. Now, let's fiesta....(that's par-tay in Spanish)!
