Did you ever see something and think "I NEED TO CREATE THAT, NAOW!!"
No? Just me.
Okay, moving on then.
When I first saw this ribbon garland from Whitney Caroline Designs, I knew I needed to make that. But I am impatient and didn't want to wait until Christmas, so I came up with a Halloween version. She used ribbon in hers. I set off to Joanns to look for some tulle in some Halloween colors.
They didn't disappoint.
All you need to create your own is
Tulle in your choice of colors. I bought a 1/2 yard of each and I had 5 colors. I still have some extra.
One strand of Christmas lights.
Just cut your strips however long you want them. I didn't even measure - I just went for it. I knew I didn't want them too long. Kids + a dog + cats = a big mess. They are just long enough to tie in a knot with a little extra at the ends.
So all you do is, pick the colors you want. I used black, orange and white together and green and purple together. Tie in-between the lights.
Besides the ridiculous amount of cutting and tying - it's really easy!
Now, sit back and enjoy your new Spoooooky Halloween garland.
You could totally make this for every holiday!
