DIY: Halloween Garland with Shari Carroll
From the moment I saw these new Tim Holtz Halloween Hangout dies, I knew I wanted to create a Halloween garland decoration for the house. This project is easy, kid friendly and adorable for some not so scary frightful fun!
I started by die cutting 4 of each of the shapes in a different color cardstock. After I die cut all my pieces, I stamped them with the Circle Doodle and Spider Web background stamps using Simon Says Stamp Clear ink and then trimmed around the edges. The dies cut out the centers so they would also be really cute for shaker cards. Once everything was trimmed, I glued them onto additional cardstock and trimmed again around the edges leaving a little border.
As a measurement guide, when I had the the piece placed on my work surface, one of each die cut spanned out to be about 16″. I added in some banners with the word BOO in between each set of dies which ended up measuring about 18″ per set. To finish this quick and easy project, I strung some twine through the holes I punched and hung it up right away! The finished garland measures about 7.5′ in length.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you have a great day!!!
