Bread Clip Monster Garland

Have you seen this darling idea from Crafts By Amanda before?
When I saw it a while back, I started saving all my bread clips in a jar, and just decided to make a silly little Halloween decoration for my kids' room with them....

The bread clips themselves came in all these different colors, so I did not have to paint the entire bread clip. 

I just used my stylist to add dots and lines with acrylic paint.  A word to make this go a bit faster: start with the eyes.  Take white paint, and paint eyes on every single bread clip.  Then, add the other patterns around them.  I think it is easier that way - especially when making these in bulk!

I hot glued them onto string to make them into a garland. 
I hung this on a blank wall to take some pictures, but I think I will put it in the girls' room, maybe on the end of their bunk bed.  They think it is funny, and love all the colors.  My daughter's favorite is Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein.  Can you spot them?  :)
