DIY Newspaper Ghost Garland

To get into the Halloween spirit, I decided to adapt my DIY Hanging Flower Garland to create a spooky ghost garland - from newspaper!

This is a great recycling project that is really effective and simple to put together; it would be a great DIY to make with little ones, and you could also try other Halloween shapes such as witches hats or if you were feeling adventurous, a skeleton!

Draw your ghost template onto a 2-3 folded newspaper sheets and cut out. Cut out two holes for the eyes and then repeat these two steps until you have enough ghosts.
Tie 6 lengths of invisible thread to a bamboo cane, and then begin sticking the ghosts down each piece of thread using invisible tape. Don't worry too much about spacing - try clustering some ghosts together and then having one separate at the bottom of the thread.

Once all your ghosts are secure, find somewhere to hang your garland - if you're having a party then hanging the garland from your doorframe will instantly set a creepy atmosphere!

We'd love to hear from you if you give this DIY a go - use the hash tag #eightandsixteen to share your photos with us!
