Do you like to make your own Halloween decor? This easy wall decoration uses inexpensive plastic fangs to create a creepy, yet colorful backdrop on your wall. Follow this tutorial to create decor perfect for Halloween parties are a spooky vignette in your home! My kids are so excited about Halloween this year. They have been wanting to decorate for the last few weeks. But since Halloween is my least favorite holiday I have been stalling. Then we found this awesome neon green skeleton. He reminded me that the decorations don’t need to be so gory and dark. And because these decorations are only kept up for a short period of time, I like really easy Halloween decoration ideas. If they are inexpensive, that’s even better. When I saw these colorful and cheap plastic fangs, it just made sense to do something with them. This plastic fang garland is a perfect Halloween craft! All you need is some string and a pack of plastic vampire teeth. The teeth come in all kinds of colors depending on where you buy them. They even have a glow in the dark version which would work great if you had darker walls.Instead of tying a knot, I did a simple loop around each side of the fangs with the yarn.And then I simply tied the other ends to my backdrop poles. This set up would work really great as a photo backdrop for your Halloween party. And of course you should set out extra teeth to use as props in the photos. Just make sure each person takes their teeth with them after they’ve used them. Because, ew. You can easily put up this garland by adhering them with some washi or masking tape. How adorable would a black and white striped tape be with these?! When taping your garlands, just make it look intentional. Create a small “x” with two pieces of tape on each end. Not only will this help to hold the string a little better, but no make it look like you designed it that way and didn’t just stick it up on the wall with tape. Your Halloween home decor totally doesn’t have to be complicated. These teeth are always a favorite in my household. The persona my youngest son takes on when he has these in his mouth is hilarious. What do I not enjoy? The slobber that comes with it. Looking for other easy Halloween decorations? Check out these tutorials:
