Gastly (Ghost Pokemon Decoration)

Introduction: Gastly (Ghost Pokemon Decoration)

On a cold and dreary October day, a single mad and twisted artist thought to herself, that nothing could be better than a Ghost Pokemon but, two Ghost Pokemon and thus, the great and terrible crafting of Gastly took place. Below, is the description the most wicked process through which, this spooky decoration came to be. So, put on some creepy music and lets get started.


  • Purple Tulle
  • Black Spray Paint
  • String
  • Sissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • White, Pink, and Black Acyrilic Paint
  • Styrofoam Ball

Step 1: Painting Gastley's Body

First, to create Gastly's Body, you need to get a Styrofoam ball which, can be found in the floral department of most craft stores and paint it black using spray paint. Then, mount the Styrofoam ball on a screw driver (or other pointy object) and mount the screw driver in the air using a work mate (or vice). This will allow the paint covered Styrofoam ball to dry without getting paint on everything.

Step 2: Painting Gastly's Face

Now, break out the acrylic paints and start painting a face on your ghost Pokemon. After which, you will need to mount on a screw driver (or other object) to let it dry;much like you did before.

Step 3: Adding Tulle

At this point it is now time, to add the Tulle around Gastly's body using a glue gun to secure it in place.

Step 4: Hanging Your Gastly

Finally,all you need to do now is hang your Gasty up for all to see.



Of the two Ghost Pokemon I made, this one is probably my favorite because, it's really simple and to the point. (Also, Gastly is my favorite evolution.) . If, I could go back and do it over I really would have liked to make my Gastly weather proof so it could be displayed out doors.Overall however, I believe it turned out pretty well.

P.S feel free to message me with any questions or concerns you may have.Thanks, for reading!
