EVERYTHING can be decorated at Halloween. Seriously, everything. Walls are a no-brainer. Table tops and shelves? Likewise. But let us not forget the simple pass-throughs we take for granted: doorways.
Last year there was a proliferation of paper garlands and pennants all over various DIY sites, and I fell in love. They’re easy to make, fast to assemble and inexpensive — all very important aspects of decor. They’re popular for baby and wedding showers, graduations and the like, and a part of me wondered, “Why not Halloween?”
An idea was born.
HOW TO MAKE A DANGLY DOORWAY:
What you’ll need:
– 2 or 3 pieces of card stock (I went with all black, but alternating with orange or purple would be cute, too)
– glue stick
– double-sided tape
Using the punch, make a gazillion punches. How many is up to you; I made a fairly long garland of about 10 feet.
When done punching, glue one punch on either side of the yarn (lining them up on top and below the yarn) like so:
… and keep going.
When you’re done, you’ll end up with a looooong garland than can be hung on various ways. My dangly doorway decor:
