Spooky Garland + Giveaway [CLOSED]

I just love me a cute bunting/garland/banner. Whatever you like to call them. I have them for almost every season/holiday.

I made this spooky ghost garland simply by sewing through the tops of these cute sparkly ghosts with white thread on my sewing machine. Easy peasy!


I think they look pretty creepy hanging under our family silhouettes!


I have a tutorial on my blog for this autumn bunting:


They're also easy to make with paper-I used some twill tape and paper triangles for this one-from the Spooks line.

Just had to share the bunting/garland/banner love. What DO people call them?

Thanks for having me this week-I had a blast! :D
Jess
