I have a lot of hang-ups when it comes to decorating for Halloween. Since I refuse to do anything spider-related (because my arachnophobia is real) and I actually don’t love the typical color scheme that much! Orange is hard for me, as I’ve mentioned before on this blog. There is no escaping it this time of year, but as long as the orange is just in pumpkin form, we’re fine. I am on an indefinite black and white kick, so I decided to make a cute, mostly black and white eyeball garland to add to my little entry-way display this year! I LOVE how it turned out. Don’t you think it’s just the right amount of creepy meets cute?
It was super cheap (yay!) and easy to put together. Here’s how to make one:
How to Make the Eyeball Garland
Start by measuring how long you want your garland to be, cut the twine to that length.
Then, stick eyeball stickers to the black felt and cut the circles out.
Next, hot glued the felt eyeballs to the twine with even distance between each one.
As you wait for glue to cool, cut strips out from the fabric and ribbons.
The striped scraps are actually from an old tank top I had. The ghost fabric was a scarf I found at Dollar Tree. The black sparkly and purple ribbons are from Wal Mart.
I then tied scraps on in between the eyeballs to fill up the space.
This took me about an hour altogether, and I think it’s just adorable. Here it is in my entry way:
