13 Days of Halloween:10 {Garland}



I have banners and garlands all over my home for Halloween. Seems like there are always new vintage-inspired designs coming out and they make everything just a little more festive! My latest edition is this amazing handmade garland by my Sweet and Sinister partner Candice Carpenter.

Elsie Flannigan has the cutest ghost kits available in her etsy shop. I found these fabulous cloth skull garlands in the etsy shop of Middleburg Folk Art Studio. or her leaf garland. Oh my!Last Halloween Candice Stringham posted this wonderful banner on her blog (below). I think the people at Memory Makers must have gotten wind of it, because they had a kit this year for a garland in their Spellbound collection that looks almost identical to it. I bought it and added my own embellishments and it turned out great.Here are a few of my flickr favorites. 1. halloween mailorder club banner, 2. halloween garland, 3. Halloween Garland, 4. Spooky Banner, 5. Halloween banners by Modern June, 6. halloween banner, 7. shabby Halloween banner, 8. Vintage Halloween Banner, 9. Spooky Mantle

We'll see you back here tomorrow for the Autumn Gathering Home party! My post will go live at 12 am, so feel free to stop by and party all night! Anyone can participate, just show us some photos of your Autumn or Halloween decorated home, favorite store, wherever and leave a comment on the party post. We'll follow the trail of leaves and visit your harvest celebration.

Totally awesome banners! These are a great decorating idea as they are easy to display and easy to store too.
