If you're completely obsessed with everything Halloween and also procrastinate on decorating for the occasion, then this DIY is for you! This spooky garland is so simple you'll have a new Halloween decoration in no time (which is good because Halloween is only a few days away)!

Materials:

  • Mini Plastic Skulls 
  • Spray Paint (optional)
  • Embroidery Thread
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Something to poke holes with

Step One:

Spray paint the skulls to whatever color your little heart desires. This step is totally optional, but I wasn't too fond of the original skull color.

Step Two:

Poke holes into the tops of the skulls. I ended up using a random tool I found lying around (I still don't know what it's called or what it's supposed to be for) but you could use a small screw driver or something similar.

Step Three:

Cut your embroidery thread to the desired length. My overall length came out to be approximately 57 inches. Create a loop at one end for hanging. Decide on the placement of the skulls and tie a knot in the thread at each spot a skull will go. I had 11 skulls and placed each around 5 1/4 inches apart. Finish the garland off by creating a loop at the other end.

Step Four:

Use the same tool you poked the holes with to slip each knot into the skulls. 

And voilĂ ! You now have a creepy cool garland to add to your Halloween decorations. Who said procrastinators can't DIY! ;)
