Of course, Milo had to be a part of the photo shoot and he did such a great job posing for me!!!
SUPPLIES |50 - 30 gallon black trash bags
20 Gauge Wire
TUTORIAL | Halloween Door Garland
- You first want to determine how you will attach the garland around your door. I have C hooks located every 2 feet or so around the outside frame of my front door.
- Measure the height of your door to determine the length of wire you need for each side...taking into account that the bags will hang down.
- I created separate pieces for each side of the door and another one for the top.
- I then wrapped the wire ends around the C hooks to attach them and hold them in place.
Remove a black trash bag from roll and unwind. Do NOT unfold it.
Take a pair of scissors and cut along the folded outside edges.
Cut strips from the bottom to the top of the bag, leaving about 2 inches at the top.
Repeat until you have cut 5-6 strips on each bag.
Wad all of the strips together in your hand to help crinkle and wrinkle the plastic.
Next, take a roll of 20 gauge wire and thread the end through the uncut top of the plastic bag.
(My front door measures 8 feet high and 5.5 feet wide.)
I then attached each length to the top and sides of the door by winding the ends of the wire around the C hooks and occasionally looped it around the other C hooks along the way.
Now your garland is complete. Stop back by tomorrow, when I will share how I decorated the garland with more Dollar Tree finds!!!
