                             Download, print and cut out your templates{see above}.
Cut to your desired length your ribbon to fit your mantel. Punch one hole on each side of your templates.
Arrange in the desired pattern you will use for the hung garland. Cut off about 12 inches of your crepe paper.
Fold it in an accordion folds. Take your large Jack-O -Lantern template and turn it over face down.
Work your folded crepe paper around the edge of the template making a complete circle and tape down the crepe paper as you go.
