Halloween Ghosts

This is a fun DIY that you can easily finish in about an hour or so. They are very easy and a fun project that you can do with your kids if you want to.

-Styrofoam balls- I found mine at Joann's
-Black felt square
-Cheese cloth
-White thread to hang the ghosts

The first thing that you want to do is cut two eyes and an oval shaped mouth out of the black felt. I wanted bigger eyes so I cut bigger ovals out for eyes. After your eyes and mouth are cut out take some pins and stick them through the eyes into the Styrofoam ball.

The next step is to open up your cheese cloth and measure out how long you want the ghosts to be. Then take your scissors and cut strips at both ends of the cheese cloth to make it more stringy. Once you have all of your strips cut then you find the center of the cheese cloth and place the ball with eyes underneath the cheese cloth. Once you have your ghost made all you need to do is use some white thread and hang your ghost.

I love how these turned out! They are such a cute addition to my Halloween decorations.

What kind of fun DIY decorations have you come up with for Halloween this year?
