Halloween is my absolute favorite crafty time of year. That is why I was delighted when I unexpectedly got the book, Artful Halloween by Susan Wasinger in the mail. This publication is filled with 31 fantastic Halloween projects, detailed in step by step, easy to follow photo tutorials. There is a wonderful section with 10 pumpkin decorating projects that will add a touch of elegance to your Halloween decor. At $7.55, this book is a must have in your inspiration arsenal. Here, you will see how I made this spooky book page garland, following Susan’s tips, using graphics included in the book as well as a couple from the beloved Graphics Fairy!

I placed my pages about 1/2 inch apart on the string, per Susan’s suggestion. You could spread them out for a sparser look, or to make the garland longer. I used 9 pages to fit my fireplace mantel. Susan recommends one foot of string one each end for hanging the garland.
I love my garland, and it is super simple, cheap, and fast to make. I want to do like 30 more of the projects in that book. You still have time to order it and get your Halloween decor on in style!
