Halloween glitter garland made with foam beads


This glittery garland is really easy to make using a needle and some string. I added some glittery spiders and letters to spell out Halloween. This is a project your kids can help you with by handing you the beads so you can string them. The beads come in many different colors and are inexpensive.


  • Package of foam beads from almost any craft store
  • strong thread or string and a sturdy needle
  • spiders and letters (I got the spiders at Wal Mart and the letters at Target)

Step 1.Start stringing beads by poking the needle and thread or string through the foam balls. Keep going  until you get to the center which you will determine by measuring where you want to string them up. 


Step 2.

Poke the needle through the letters (left to right) and then put a ball between each letter. Finish stringing the beads and secure the ends with a small o ring.

Step 3.

Punch a hole in the spider and then attach a piece of yarn that is long enough to allow the spider to hang down from the garland. Tie them to the garland.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
