This homemade ghost garland is a super easy project for Halloween, and one the kids will love to help you with. I came up with it after I realized our black Halloween garland needed a little something more.
I found some black fake pine garland at Michael’s yesterday for $2.50 for 6 feet. I put it on our back porch and decided that it needed something a little more. The little more was ghosts, but I didn’t have any white fabric in my fabric stash.
Today, when we went to Joann Fabrics, I found several pieces of white cotton in the remnants section. I grab 2 remnants which were $.77 and $.61 each, however, this weekend they are marked down another 75%, making them $.20 and $.16. At home I had black yarn in my yarn stash and wooden beads in my craft stash, all at least a year old. I think the yarn is probably five years old at this point. Each remnant made 8 ghosts, all of which I used on the black garland.
I cut squares about 8 inches in width and draped one over a bead. Then, I tied the black yarn just under the bead to create a head. I left enough black yarn to use it to tie the homemade ghostie to the black garland.
