Welcome to the first of my 2014 Halloween themed posts! Whilst I won't be daily blogging throughtout October like I did last year, this time round I'm starting early and have lots of Halloween themed posts lined up for you over the next six weeks, beginning with today's roundup of 7 awesome DIY garland ideas!
1. Candy Corn Garland (via Poppytalk)
You'll only need card & a sewing machine to recreate this super stylish but simple to make garland that's perfect for adding a bold pop of colour to your window.
2. Black Cats & Friendly Ghosts (via Cakies)
For a glowing garland grab a string of fairy lights and create card shapes to place over them. Use the templates provided to make your own black cat and spooky ghost designs or put your own spin on the idea with some pumpkins, skulls or zombies!
3. Yarn Pumpkins (via Design Improvised)
If you love to knit and always have lots of leftover wool this one's for you! Combine with pipe cleaners and twine to create this cute and festive garland.
4. Glittered Skull Garland (via Vitamini Handmade)
These skull garlands with a pop of glitter have cleverly been created using cookie cutters & clay - they look great layered up as shown in the tutorial!
5. Ghostie Garland (via Wild Olive)
For an adorable twist on a spooky favourite why not create your own soft felt ghosts? You could also adapt this idea and make other felt characters such as pumpkins, monsters or cats!
6. Spider Web Doily Bunting (The Scrap Shoppe)
For a simple and subtle Halloween garland dye fabric doilies or paint paper ones black, cut in half and string up above the fireplace!
7. Spooky Eyeball Garland (via Hands Occupied)
To really catch the attention of your party guests try this eyeball design made using ping pong balls and beads. You'll need a few more supplies for this idea but the end result looks great!
Which design idea is your favourite?
