Easy Halloween Garland

I love sewing with paper – it’s my new favorite go-to decor project.  Here’s my 30 minutes or less Halloween paper garland.  
I started with some orange paper – left over from when I thought I was going to make my own wedding invitations – ha!  This paper has beautiful strands of colorful fibers in the paper.  
I cut 10 squares into 4 x 4 inch pieces. 
Using India ink, I painted designs on the pieces of paper.  
I sewed them together, corner to corner.  Be sure to leave plenty of extra thread at each end to affix your garland to whatever item you choose.  I always recommend sewing a test strip of paper, before launching into your project.  
This is a cheap and easy way to decorate for any occasion.  If you do not fancy yourself a painter or drawer, this would be just as easy to do with clip art.  
In other news, a big fresh bottle of vanilla showed up, courtesy of my in-laws!  Hooray, it is safe to bake again.  
A personal favorite ink:

  1. Hello! I noticed your vanilla bottle…. I received the same vanilla as a gift. It truly is the best vanilla and I haven’t been able to find it on an internet search. Any chance you have a source for it? I’d love to get another bottle. Thank you!
