Ghost Hanger

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

How cute is this halloween ghost hanger? Oh! I mean, how scary is this? Hang him on a doorknob, a wreath, your halloween tree, or wherever a scary touch is needed. He is so easy to make, kids can do it.

You need:
  • craft foam: white, yellow
  • 1/2 of a red chenille stem
  • 12" of black ribbon with white dots
  • Glitter glue: black, silver, red
  • 4" of clear round elastic
  • craft glue
  • paper and #2 pencil
  • scissors
Try this:

To see the ghost better, click on the photo of the ghost to make it larger.

1. Draw a ghost shape on the paper, with a kind of thick pencil line. Turn the paper upside down on white craft foam and trace the lines on the backside of paper. The pencil lines will transfer to the craft foam. Cut out the ghost.

2. Get a small bottle or film canister, something round. Trace around it on the yellow craft foam. Cut it out.

3. With black glitter glue, print BOO on the circle. Outline the ghost shape in silver glitter glue. Use black to make eyes and mouth. Draw a red glitter glue heart in the center of the ghost. Let all glitter glue dry.

4. Turn the ghost and the BOO circle upside down on crafting surface. Fold the piece of chenille stem in half and glue to the top/back of the ghost. Glue the elastic to the bottom of the ghost and the top of the BOO circle. Use a good amount of glue for this step. Let the glue dry.

5. Tie a bow with the ribbon around the chenille stem hanger, just above the ghost.

6. Hang him up where everyone can see him!

Halloween and glitter...a good match!
Glitter on!
