With a little one in my house, Halloween is one of these excuses to go crazy creating stuff, costumes, decorations, what have you. We can always use a new item to put up for the season, right? And we do end having so much fun doing it together as a family.
This project I'm sharing is a quick and easy one that we did last weekend - a garland of little ghosts that you can hang anywhere. N. had a great time with this one. The ghost faces were easy enough that she could do some of them on her own, and she loved the results. She actually kept a few of the ghosts to play with.
What you need:
- scraps of muslin
- styrofoam balls
- brushes and paint
- Fold the scrap in half (or a piece of rectangular muslin you cut), then paint the face near the fold.
- Place a styrofoam ball under the top, behind the face you painted. Tie the fabric tightly just under the ball with the string.
- Repeat with as many little ghosts as you want.
- Once you have your ghosts, place a long string through the knots under their heads and voila. Now all you need is to hang it up anywhere you want.
Happy Halloween everyone!
