Add some farmhouse decor to your spooky motif with our Halloween Burlap Garland!
Every year around this time, my Lighted Burlap Garland post goes crazy. Ya’ll love some burlap and lights! (I even have a 4th of July version.) I bought new outdoor decorations this year from Kirklands but it needed something else. So whipped up a new batch of burlap lights to place around our front door!

Materials needed to make your own Halloween Burlap Garland
When I created the Christmas garland, I used scissors to cut all of the burlap. This time I thought I would try my paper cutter. It worked like a charm! This little trick cut down (pardon the pun) my crafting time by 50%.
I found my burlap ribbon rolls at Hobby Lobby. They have every color under the sun plus some patterned ones. (In case you do not have a Hobby Lobby near you, I have included the links to similar ribbon on Amazon.)
Begin by measuring your burlap ribbon roll to 10 inches on your paper cutter. Cut the ribbon. Keep repeating this process until the entire roll has been cut.
See how cleanly it cuts the burlap? Life changing.
Once you have cut the sections you need, turn the burlap piece 90 degrees and cut into thirds. Each piece will yield three cut pieces.
Repeat the above process for all of the burlap.
Once you have all of your pieces cut, it’s time to tie them onto the light strand. To simplify this process, I used grocery bags to divide out my colors. I sat down next to my colors, decided on my pattern and began tying them around the light strand.
This is a super easy project but the tying takes some time. It took me 6 innings of baseball to get the entire strand wrapped. That is about 2 hours. Put on your favorite movie or binge watch some Netflix to pass the time.
The other two times I have made this project, I didn’t use it outside. This time I hung them around my front door and it looks amazing!! Looks cute during the day too!
I love it! This year I’m hanging my Christmas one around the front door too!
