[ok one of you did.]
So here's the tutorial!
You could really use a square of anything. Last year we did plastic grocery bags, because I was afraid of the weather proofing.
I also did some in h'ween fabric because I just happened to have some lying around [hoarder]...
So I don't know how hardy the ones I made this year are, but I'm not really losing sleep over whether a ghost has fallen on my driveway in a wet soppy mess and the cat has half dragged it through the mud. This is a quick & dirty. I mean, it's not Christmas, for Christ's sake. Halloween is designed to teach our children about cross-dressing and sugar comas.
[see what you have lying around, seriously]:
- a string for neck & hanging (I chose black ribbon),
- a square of some material (I chose cotton fabrics and tulle),
- a stuffing material (I chose tissue paper),
- marker for face decorating (I chose permanent), and
- cut black ribbon (length is not that important)
- ball up tissue paper stuffing
- decorate ghost faces (after I finished tying ghost)
- cut squares of fabric (12 x 12)
- stuffed ball of tissue paper in center
- tie ribbon around neck
- hang ghosts by tying neck piece tight so the ghosts don't look like hangmen
Make a bunch! I think a key to making a big impact in decorating is repetition and volume!
Here's our outside impact:
You want them to be stiff enough that they don't look like they are hanging; they are 'flying'.
Here's our inside impact (white tulle, orange tulle, Halloween fabric ghosts):
While I had the string out:
Happy Halloween Crafting!!
