So this was stage two of my little halloween shrine this year. I decided my skulls needed a little company, but I don't really like going too much over the top with decorations. Less is more, so I created this super mini star garland to give a backdrop to my skull candle holders.
This was so mega easy to make, and they look awesome. Whatever colours you want to do will look amazing, I chose matching colours to the skulls I made at the weekend to keep the theme going.
1. Start cutting out your stars with the star cutter. I got mine from the craft store for like a buck fiddy, they have them at Michaels and usually most dollar stores. For every one star you'll need 2 sides, so however many you want to make e.g. 12 stars on the garland, you'll need 24 cut out.
2. Glue a star and place the thread cutting through the middle. Take another star of the same colour (or different colour, whatever you want) and stick it to the first, keeping the thread in place. Hold it down for a little while to make sure the glue really sticks tight
3. Leave about 3 inches of plain thread, then repeat the process with the opposite colour. Or the same colour. Use five colours, it's really up to you. Go crazy!
And that's it. Rinse and repeat about 12 times and you've got yourself a tiny garland my friend. Hang where appropriate. Enjoy. If you like those and want to make some of your own,click here for the tutorial.
