If you like simple but chic holiday decorations then you and I should be best friends. I have a hard time finding non-kitschy holiday decorations therefore I decorate very little and then I feel like a “Grinch” (even though it isn’t Christmas). My kids are old enough now that I have to decorate so here is a very simple but still festive skeleton garland I whipped up.
I found these skeleton garlands at the Dollar Tree. I am not a huge fan of the way they looked originally so I decided to glam them up a bit. Seriously, is there anything gold paint doesn’t make a million times better? I painted them (trick is to paint the front first starting with the legs, head and then body) and since they were already attached to some twine all I had to do was hang it up. But the OCD inside of me made me switch out and alternate the black and white ones. I know it is a problem. I do love how it turned out though! And you can’t beat only paying $2 for both garlands. I love the dollar store. And gold paint. I may need an intervention because I am painting everything in sight gold, like these stools.
