Easy Halloween Garland

By:

Show your neighbors your love for the season with a fun and festive craft from Terri O. This easy Halloween garland can brighten up any space, big or small.

Easy Halloween Garland

Materials:

  • Felt-black, orange, green
  • Floss ( I used DMC Pearl, all strands)
  • Needle #22
  • Cheesecloth
  • Fabric stiffener ( I used Stiffy by Plaid)
  • Glow in the dark textured paint (Plaid)
  • Black pipe cleaners
  • Splat mat by Bazzill (you can order off www.herrschners.com)
  • Fishing line
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Wire snips
  • Black yarn ( I used Fun Fir by Lion Brand)
  • Wood cuts (I found mine at Joann’s)
  • Stuffing ( I used bamboo fiber)

Instructions:

  1. Make two layers of felt and cut out your designs. I cut out pumpkins, bats, spiders and crosses.
     
  2. Stitch them together with floss leaving a space for stuffing.
     
  3. Stuff them and stitch closed.
     
  4. To make the ghosts cut a small piece of cheesecloth and saturate with Stiffy.
     
  5. Place cheesecloth on the splat mat and form the shape of a ghost and let it dry for several hours.
     
  6. Drill holes in the wood cut outs then paint them with glow in the dark paint.
     
  7. Create the garland by tying together several long strands of yarn. The length depends on how long you want it to be.
     
  8. Attach all your creations with fishing line and hang.
     
  9. I used some items I found at the dollar store to fill in the gaps.
