Whoo-hoo, half way through the H. projects! Today’s project is some Halloween-themed garland.
I needed something to help provide some color to my Halloween display. Don’t get me wrong, I like the black and white of what I had going, but I wanted just a little more umph. So, I created a VERY simple garland to help spice things up a bit.
I found these sequins at Hobby Lobby (they were on clearance, which is why I thought of this project in the first place 😉 I bought three packages, and each one was $1! I used some simple heavy-duty thread to string them along. If you don’t have that, yarn or light-weight wire would work too. I tied each circle on, so they wouldn’t move. My goal was to space them about 1-1 1/2 inches apart. Some are about that, some are a little less.
When I got done with that, the garland looked….a little naked.
So I decided to add some fabric strips. After searching my stash, I came up with a couple black prints and some plain orange fabrics. I began by cutting some strips.
