A Simple DIY Skull Garland for Halloween
Forget the candy corn, and don’t even think about those giant Kit Kat bars. Halloween is made for fun DIY projects. A simple search on Pinterest will give you limitless ideas for Halloween decorations. Some of these DIY ideas are easy, and some are anything but.
This little decoration project is on the easy side of the spectrum, and all you need is some paper, string, and adhesive. Let me show you how it’s done!
I got the original idea for this skull garland from my friend Maren. She had made the garland for a Halloween party she had last year and I thought it looked so great against the wall. She got the idea originally from Design Sponge.

The skull paper can be found at Paper Source. They also have the skull garland for sale, but it’s considerably more expensive than a single piece of paper. I decided to save the money for something else and cut out the skulls individually from the paper. It takes some time to cut out the skulls, so make sure to put on a good movie while you’re busy crafting.
The original instructions on Design Sponge suggest that you attach the skulls to a string with a glue stick and add another creative paper to the back of the skull. I was too busy (lazy?) to do this, so I simply attached the skulls with a little tape to the string and hung them on the wall. It’s up to you to decide how crazy you wanna get with your decorations.
After I created the garland I simply hung the strings of skulls on the wall. I thought it added a nice touch to a wall that would have otherwise been bare.
