If you like to decorate your home for Halloween, I think you might like to make this quick and inexpensive pendant garland. Depending on the stamp you decide to use (I chose a Halloween pumpkin by Hero Arts), find the Sizzix circle die that will fit the image. I ran the die through my Big Shot but stopped half way. Then I cut straight down from the side of the orange half circle and free hand cut the pendant bottom.
Once I made the first pendant, I used it as a template for the others. I used Merikan tape to seal the bottom and sides of each pendant. This made a pocket that can be filled with lollipops or other slim candies. I didn't fill mine yet.
I punched holes on the side of each pendant before tying on the Little Flowers yarn that I found at HM Ben Franklin Crafts. Making this project is a great way to use up all the little scraps of Halloween decorative papers leftover from other projects. Also, if you fill the pockets with treats (pens are good too), the garland can be cut apart and the treat pendants can be given to the departing guests. Of course, you can make the pendants larger to hold more goodies.
Even if you are not having a Halloween party, you can make this garland and save it as a yearly decoration. Just having something festive in the house makes me smile and look forward to the holiday season. Go ahead, craft your holiday happiness!
