Step One: Using your pumpkin cookie cutter as a guide, trace as many pumpkins as you need for your garland onto the orange scrapbooking paper.
- Do the same with the ghost cookie cutter and white paper.
Step Two: Cut out the paper ghosts and pumpkins.
Step Three: Punch two holes - one on either side of the top of the ghosts and pumpkins for hanging.
Step Five: Thread the raffia or string through the punched holes at the top of your ghosts and pumpkins.
Step Six: Hang your Halloween Pumpkin and Ghost garland! This poster putty is our go-to! It removes easily and cleanly when you are ready to put away your garland until next year!
We have our garland hanging on our fireplace mantel this year. In the past, we've also hung it in doorways, above windows and on a blank wall!
