Get Crafty: Simple Halloween Garland

My 5-year-old has been constantly begging for Halloween crafts to do.
One day I had completely exhausted all the ideas I had and went searching through our craft supplies. I happened upon a bag of foam Halloween stickers and inspiration hit.
We could make a Halloween garland. It was a simple process and the girls were able to do most of it independently.

Supplies Needed:
Black construction paper
Orange construction paper
Foam stickers
Scissors
Yarn
Tape
The first step is to cut a supply of orange and black circles from the construction paper. You can use a circle punch or use a jar lid or drinking glass to trace circles in the size you want. (Ours were 2-inch circles.)
I gave the girls the circles and stickers with the instructions to put one sticker on each circle.

 

After each circle had a sticker, we arranged them in an alternating orange and black pattern. We taped each one to the yarn per the above picture approximately 2-inches apart.

Once we were done taping, we had a pretty and very simple Halloween garland.

 

Lizzie’s still asking for Halloween projects to do, so I think it’s time to go browse Pinterest. Do you have any ideas to share?
