diy halloween ghosts

Nicole’s mother came up with these little DIY Halloween ghosts and they are decorating both of their fall trees. We like them because they are friendly looking, hang nicely and really look like they are flying in the wind! They have lasted for a years and you don’t have to be careful about storing them. We get white foam packing material like this in the mail and we save it to make the ghosts. Find the center of the foam sheet and stuff the heads with anything really, like a dry cleaning bag. Next, tie the neck with fishing line and leave part of the string on one side long to tie to a tree branch. You can decorate the faces with felt eyes or we have also used duck tape. Finally, trim the edges of the bottom to make it look even and a little more like torn fabric. This project can be done with children because it is fast. For really little ones, pre-cut the eyes so they can simply be glued on. Happy Halloween!
