Simple Halloween Garland

After writing the post earlier about fall, I just had to
get going on something crafty for my favorite season.

I was kind of hitting a big fat crafting wall, so after a
while I finally came up with this fun and simple little
Halloween Garland made from ribbon and paper.
*I think I was trying too hard - the simplest crafts
are oftentimes the funnest to create!

I REALLY love how this turned out.

I didn't take photos of the process because it's
just THAT simple. But here are a few steps if it helps:
  1. Measure a 5ft. piece of ribbon.
  2. Cut our circles of Halloween color papers.
  3. Embellish (i.e. googlie eyes, zig zag scissors, or these).
  4. Punch top of each circle with ribbon punch.
  5. Thread onto ribbon at 6" intervals, leaving 6-8" on each end.
  6. Fold each end of ribbon over and hot glue to make a loop to hang.
  7. Hang for some spooky Halloween fun!
Like I said earlier, I'd LOVE to see your fall decorations,
craft ideas, favorite recipes, etc. to share. Just email me.

More tomorrow!
