DIY Skull Garland
I have been so inspired this year by all of the Halloween DIY's on Pinterest and Instagram! A lot of people have found small skeletons at the Dollar Tree and turned them into the cutest spooky décor! Unfortunately, my Dollar Tree had exactly zero skeletons for all of my DIY ideas! Instead, I found these little skulls and bones and knew exactly what I wanted to create - GARLAND!
For a few dollars I transformed these little plastic pieces into spooky-chic décor for my peg shelves and I'm sharing the easy tutorial with you!
What you need
skulls and bones from the Dollar Tree
flat black spray paint - I used Rust-oleum Painter's Touch *NOTE - use any color you like!!!*
twine, or whatever string/ribbon you like

How to Make it
Spray paint all of your pieces and let them dry.
For the Skull and Cross Bones
Take 2 of the larger bones and hot glue them together to make an X. Hot glue a skull to the front.
Using a small dot of hot glue, attach each skull or bone to your twine in whatever pattern you like. I made 2 different styles but there are lots of other ways you could assemble your garland!
Make them as short or as long as you like! With 2 packs of heads and 2 packs of bones, I was able to make 2 long garlands with pieces still left over.
These skull garlands make the best accent décor paired with my DIY Halloween wreath and some creepy art I printed out for free online. I added a little bit of faux spider web for an extra spooky vibe!
