Ghostly

I mentioned a few weeks ago that we were having a block Halloween party. To show our spirit for the evening we made a lot of things… including this ghost. All you need is:

  • 3 yards white bridal tulle
  • 6 inch diameter Styrofoam ball
  • Sheet of black construction paper
  • 48″ dowel
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors
  1. Scrunch your tulle into several bunches so that it is very wrinkled (this will help it stand up and appear more spooky)
  2. Cut two 2 inch circles out of the black construction paper for the eyes and a large oval for the mouth
  3. Apply the paper to the Styrofoam ball with hot glue
  4. Insert your dowel in the bottom of the ball (use your scissors or a pencil to start the hole)
  5. Snip a 12 inch strip of the tulle and then drape the remaining tulle over the ball
  6. Define the neck by tying the tulle in place at the neck with the 12″ strip

Have fun!
