{DIY} Halloween Paper Plate Garland

October will be here in just a few days, so this weekend will be spent digging out the Halloween decorations from the attic and putting them up. I love to put out everything on the 1st of October so we can enjoy them all month long. And also to make it worth my husband's time spent digging everything out ;)

So this week I've been working on some simple and cute decorations and I want to share one with you. This is a very easy and inexpensive garland made from paper plates!

I put it together in about half an kind of quick & easy craft!

You will need:
paper plates in 2 sizes
adhesive (I used a glue dot runner)
foam glitter sheets
hole punch

I found these paper plates for 97 cents a package!

I used a drinking glass to trace circles onto my foam glitter sheets and cut them out. For the letters, I printed them onto cardstock and used a spooky looking font.

I cut out the letters out and then glued them to the glitter foam circles (I used glue dots).

I punched a hole on each side of each paper plate. It's a good idea to use one punched out plate as a guide for the rest so that your banner will hang evenly. Then I glued the circles onto the smaller plates.

Last, cut your ribbon into small pieces (my pieces were about 6" long). Then loop each piece through the punched holes and tie into a bow, so that you connect each plate together.

Now you have a fun little Halloween banner to display! There are so many cute Halloween paper plates out there so you can really coordinate this to your decoration scheme. It would also be a fun party decoration using coordinating party plates!

Booooo-tiful ;) (groan...I couldn't resist)!!!

I'm linking this up at these FABULOUS parties...
