Wow! Can you believe it’s already time to decorate for Halloween? (At least at my house, it is.) I am pretty excited this year. Not only is Halloween one of my favorite holidays, I also think The Boy might actually enjoy trick-or-treating this time around. He is turning 2 this month :)
I decided to make another Halloween garland. I think I have a thing for garlands…
This one says “Bats & Boos & Goblins & Ghouls.”
It was quite easy to make, too. I just used a 2″ hole punch, cut a few letters out of scrapbook paper, a pile of various colored paint chips and a scrap of yarn.
To make my letters, I traced around some chip board letters and cut them out, but this would be perfect if you have a Silhouette.
To make this garland, I punched out a bunch of circles using paint chips and glued the letters on the top piece with white school glue. (If you are very careful, you can get 3 circles out of one paint chip). Once the glue dried, I put a bit of hot glue on the opposite circle and sandwiched the yarn in between two circles, glueing the yarn in place and the two circles together at once.
Pretty simple :)
Also, starting this month, I have joined with some incredible bloggers to bring you a round-up of themed posts. At the beginning of each month, you will get a healthy dose of fun craft projects and yummy recipes, yay! Of course, this month is all about Halloween and Autumn.
