When I think of Halloween I automatically think, pumpkins! They are a lot of fun and simply put, a great way to decorate for the Fall. I created this Spooky Halloween Garland out of diecuts, which hangs perfectly on our mantle.
What You’ll Need:
- Black Cardstock
- Orange Cardstock
- Green Brads
- Jute Twine
- Electronic Cutter such as a Cricut or Silhouette w/ Halloween Shapes
- Xyron 900 or other adhesive
- Crop A Dile or hole punch
Cut out 8 pumpkin shapes on your diecut machine in orange cardstock. Then cut out the letter’s SPOOKY in black cardstock as well as the 5 bat shapes. Be sure that the size of the letters is smaller than the pumpkins. Once all of the shapes are cut out, punch a hole evenly in each side of the pumpkins as well as the bats. Take the letters and run them through your Xyron machine or put adhesive on the back of each one to center on each of the pumpkins. Fill the center holes with the green brads and putting the black bat on the front of each pumpkin. Leave each of the ends open, then tie a piece of the Jute twine on each side to hang either on a wall or mantle.
