Weekend DIY: Halloween Ghosts

Simple Halloween Ghost

Use a marker or iron-ons to create a real face for that ghost costume. (source: KC’s Colloquium)

Are you in the Halloween spirit yet? I remember going as a ghost for Halloween several times. It was the simplest of costumes, made from an old bed sheet, with holes cut out for eyes. That was it.

Of course, there are plenty of things you can turn into ghosts, so this weekend I wanted to share some ridiculously simple ones that will add that extra touch to your house, Halloween party, or costume.

If you make anything ghostly this year, I’d love to see pictures! One can never get enough of Halloween and things that go “Boo!”.

Ghost Pops: Use white fabric, ribbon and googly eyes to transform Tootsie Roll pops into creatures of the night.

Glowing Ghosts: Insert glow sticks into balloons. For a creepier touch, top with cheesecloth.

Ghostly Heads: This one uses Styrofoam heads found in craft stores and cheesecloth.
