If you want a VERY easy last minute geek Halloween decoration for your festivities this weekend, here you go! Our DIY Batman garland.
We talked about this Batman garland in our Halloween house tour post, but thought it deserved it’s own post since quite a few of our friends have said it’s their favorite part of our geek Halloween decor.
We used a thick poster board for the bats – we know a lot of people use construction paper and fold it in half to make the cutting quicker, but we liked the idea of a more solid piece, without a bend. Totally up to you.
We printed and cut out the template, then put it onto the poster board and traced it with chalk. And traced, and traced, and traced some more. You could use light colored pencil instead, which would probably be less messy!
Cutting the Batman shapes out leaves one side ugly and chalky, but the other side nice and crisp and clean.
We used black washi tape to stick standard fishing line onto each Batman paper logo, but any kind of tape will work (we just went with what was within arms reach. Lazy). You could also use colorful twine or string, if you want to add more contrast.
We’re going to hang on to our DIY Batman garland until December, then probably spray paint it silver and gold, for a little jumpstart on our geeky holiday decor. 🙂
What do you think? We kind of don’t want to take it down, so will probably just move it into our hallway until December. Kind of feels like year round geek decor, yes?
