Intro: Halloween Ghosts (cheap Decor)
These Ghosts can be made to use one at a time, or throw in some LED lights put in some configuration like mine. Great Bang for your buck for budget decorations!
Step 1: Materials:
3 white bags per ghost
dowels (i used various sizes so they would bend differently in the wind)
material for stuffing (i used newspaper wrapped in white printer paper)
Step 2: Shape the Head
make a ball of paper the size you want the head of your ghost to be, insert that into one bag, then layer the second bag over that . Push the dowel into the ball of paper (inside the bags) Use clear tape to tape around the "neck".
Step 3: Shape the Body
Use clear tape to make a "waist" . then cut up from the bottom of the bag to the waist to make 'ribbons'.
Step 4: Make the Arms
Cut the third bag in half length wise, then tape the two lengths together to make one long piece.
Step 5: Attach the Arms
wrap the long piece around the 'torso' of your ghost, use tape to secure the shoulders.
Step 6: Tie the Hands Together
Or make a knot for the 'hand' if you plan on placing them solo.
Step 7: (optional) Add Lights
i positioned mine in a circle, then made a "fire" and added some lights at their feet.
For 3 bags, a dowel, and some tape these are super easy to make, and are sure to impress.
