Quick & Easy Halloween Garland

Pin It
My poor mantel needed some love!  All I had on it was my  Dollar Store vignette.
I decided I needed a fun  Halloween garland.  While out shopping I got the idea to take 2 pieces of dollar store garland and spray paint it black.  I would use that as my base of my garland.  I got so excited to do it, I forgot to take pictures. Whoops!
For my garland I used scrapbooking paper and some embellishments I found in the dollar section of Target and JoAnn Fabrics.
Cut your scrapbooking into the shape you want your garland to be.  I chose triangles.   After they are cut decide which embellishments you want on your paper.
Add your trim and then you embellishments.
I then took mini clothes pins and pinned them on to my black garland.
I will show you how to create this Halloween candle next week.
Nice and easy and colorful.
How about you?  Do you put up Halloween decorations?  If you do do you do spooky or just fun decor?
Here are a few of my past Halloween projects:
