These are great to hang in trees on doorknobs, cabinet handles, refrigerators, stove handles, towel racks, or from ceiling fans. Anywhere the wind blows is a great place to put them as well. Make sure to make lots of them and even some for Halloween favors are trinkets or treats.
White foam meat trays
black magic marker
Cut a ghost out of your foam meat tree after tracing or drawing it on the tray with black magic marker. Punch eyes out with the hole puncher. Make a hole at the top of the head and one at the bottom, don’t get to close to the edge so it won’t break or tear. Make sure top and bottom holes are centered. Cut two lengths of yarn for bottom and top of the ghost. Make sure yarn is long enough to make a loop by halving the yarn to the length you choose to make it, different links are fun for different levels when hung, Tie the two loose ends of the string together. Thread the bell on the bottom piece of yarn, wool yarn is best for this project. Tie loose ends together. Draw the ghosts mouth with your black magic marker. Have fun and enjoy!
Tree Hanging Ghosts
black magic marker
white garbage bags
round styrofoam balls, old Christmas balls that have yarn coming loose are good to use for this project. (old newspaper crumbled into a ball is fine as well)
bread ties or wire tie wraps
Cut 8″ x 10″ squares out of white garbage bags, put styrofoam balls in the center, twist, add a tie wrap to keep ball secure. leave enough room at the top to make a point, punch a hole in the center, not close to the edge, of the point. Use bread ties to secure to limbs or mailboxes or wherever you might want to hang them or you may also use yarn to make different lengths as well. Use magic marker to make eyes and mouth on both sides of the ball, front and back.
White gift tissue or handkerchiefs or white garbage bags
Cut 10′ x 10′ squares. Wrap Tootsie roll in white square, centered. Gather around stick and twist, secure at the bottom of the ball and tie your piece of yarn. Use black magic marker to make eyes and mouth on both sides of the lolly pop. Make ghost treat necklaces by connecting and tying more than one lolly pop on a string.
