Looking for an inexpensive, simple, and very cool idea for Halloween party decor? Something you can make with your paper stash maybe? Try making this Halloween Party Garland using your favorite Halloween papers, your Evolution, and some handy Lifestyle Crafts Dies.
I started by selecting some patterned papers from the Shine and Indian Summer collections in my current favorite Halloween color scheme–black, grey, yellow, and white. While using Halloween themed papers for Halloween crafting is fun, you can also save yourself some time and money by shopping your stash of generic patterned paper within the Halloween color scheme you’ve selected.
Then I used the Star Punch Die, the Circle Punch Die, and the Spider Shape Die to cut several pieces for my garland. Standard shapes such as circles and stars are a great foundation for crafts of any theme. By simply using papers with a Halloween color scheme and adding one Halloween-themed shape (the spider die), I was able to create a Halloween feel to the project.
To assemble my garland I machine stitched the die cut shapes together with white thread by feeding them one after the other into my sewing machine. Designer tip: when machine sewing be sure to use a separate needle for fabric and paper projects as paper dulls your needle.
