Halloween Party Hat Garland

Well, we’re officially closing in on the home stretch to Halloween. This weekend I started to unbox all of my fun “vintagey” Halloween decor in preparation for our annual pumpkin carving party. That’s always a fun time! I love tucking in little bits of decor into unexpected places. This Halloweeney party hat garland fits the bill for this framed chalkboard!

This is the perfect way to use up scraps of patterned paper! Simply fold into a cone shape, adhere and trim with glitter and a sprig of vintage metallic garland. I strung these together with cotton string. They measure approx. 3 inches tall.

I found this colorful owl image as I was unpacking. Just love it, and thought it would look so cute as an ornament on my miniature tree. To create these, I scanned the image, sized it and printed it onto white cardstock. To make it even a bit sturdier, I backed it onto a piece of chipboard and cut out each image. Of course, I had to add a bit of glitter! A bent black pipecleaner creates the “hook” for the ribbon.

I think they decorate the tree nicely!

I hope you are having fun preparing for Halloween! Maybe you’ll even have time to craft a party hat or two. 🙂

Happy Creating,

Michelle
