I wanted to make a darling garland for Halloween this year. My parents always made Halloween a fun, happy, candy-filled day rather than too spooky, and I want to keep that tradition alive. I whipped up a few illustrations in my sketchbook, scanned them into my computer and colored them in digitally in PS.

Then I used a punch to cut out some scalloped circles that are slightly larger. I made 2 for each illustrated circle. You can print as many pages of the pictures as you like and make the garland repeat. You can even cut out the pictures for both sides of the scalloped circles...get creative :) You can also put cute shiny stars or other spacers in between each picture on your ribbon.
I glued the picture to the scalloped circle and then glued a washer/penny to the back of the scalloped circle. Then I glued the second scalloped circle to the back to cover the washer/penny.
I measured the length that I wanted my garland to be and cut a ribbon about 3 inches longer. I spaced out the pictures evenly and glued them on with a hot glue gun (not pictured).
I turned out cute and is fun to have hanging up for the little guy to see :) If you make this project, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see your pictures!!
