Here are the suggested supplies:
Natural colored coffee filters
White doilies (I substituted white tissue paper)
Plate (best in dessert size 4-6")
Here is the picture from the magazine..............
Better Homes and Gardens Halloween Issue 2011
I love this garland, but had to work with limited supplies
Coffee filters, White tissue paper, Scissors, Pen
I used my Pier 1 fall dessert plate to trace out circles on a stack of tissue paper
Then cut the circles out with scissors
Make a sandwich 1 white tissue - 1 coffee filter - another white tissue
Fold in half
Then in half again, so it looks like a cone shape
Twist at the bottom and wrap with floral wire...leaving at least 4-5 inches overhang so you can attach it to your black ribbon.
From my event planning/ favor business I have huge spools of ribbon so I didn't cut until I was done attaching the flowers then snipped my ends and tacked onto wall.
Here is my creepy garland over my living room/dining room archway
I added some black bows in the center of some flowers
I didn't want a very full garland for this particular holiday or archway, but it has given me a fabulous idea for the next holiday season Christmas! lol
