2008 Halloween Fun...A party for 20 2 and 4 year olds!! It's that time to start decorating for this year. I have decided to go for a vintage feel with a little bit of whimsy and funky. My black Garland is at the house in Kansas City so time to make a trip to the craft store. It takes a little time but the best way to start a Halloween garland is to buy plain Christmas garland (green) and cheap black spray paint. It will take several coats of paint but the end result is worth it!! Instead of searching for black garland this is the easier and cheaper way to create a base for your Halloween Ornaments.
