I don’t know what’s going on with me, but it’s like I got bit by the Pinterest bug or something – I all of a sudden am fine with the idea of cooking (what??) and I had the extreme urge to craft the other day and make homemade Halloween decorations out of found items.
It was kind of weird.
But, I had to share this random but kind of adorable (to me) thing I did – my little ghost garland!
So easy, if you are looking for a quick way to get in the Halloween spirit this weekend.
This what I had laying around:
- a Sharpie
- a bunch of white gift wrap tissue paper (I feel guilty throwing it away so I save it? #hoarder)
- a stapler
- twine (I don’t know why)
The twine is very fally-y, don’t you think? I think I ordered it on Amazon (still don’t know why) and I think I will also tie it around vases and such to make the place even more fall-like.
So, as you can probably see, the process is pretty simple. I just took a corner of tissue paper, rolled it on itself into a little ball the size of a tiny ghost head, kinda pinched, cut it so it had a little ghost skirt, grabbed the part of the twine I wanted it to hang on, and stapled. Add three sharpied circles, and you’re on to the next. It took me no time, and was a fun activity to do while watching Buffy. How in the Halloween spirit am I?
You can kind of fold and manipulate the tissue paper to hide the staple, or you can just say fuck it it’s a DIY ghost, I don’t care if they see a frickin staple, cuz I’m awesome and made this myself because I have so much Halloween cheer to share.
Look how cute they are!
Anthony’s mom got us that cute string of jack-o-lantern lights a few years back. :)
They’re making me pretty happy right now, along with the gingerbread wax melts Anthony’s mom sent us for our good-smelly bathroom light/wax melter thing (making our place smell like fall amazingness), and a centerpiece of orange and yellow roses Anthony brought home from an event he worked at the other night. I shall put twine on it and have the most festive apartment ever!
What festive fall things do you got goin on? Any DIYs we can all do while watching tv?
