Items you need to make a Small Ghost Halloween Holiday Decorations

You do not need much to make these fun little ghosts. The one thing you will need to buy for a buck, if you don’t have them at home, is a packet of wiggly eyes. These can be found at Wal-Mart or your local convenience store. Some packets cost less than a dollar.

The other items you need are aluminum foil, twisty ties, tissue paper and glue. Add in the wiggly eyes and you have all you need.

Instructions to make a Small Ghost Halloween Decoration

First, roll up your aluminum foil into a ball. Then place the ball into the middle of the piece of tissue and wrap the tissue over it to cover the ball. Next, tie the twisty tie around the ball so you have a little ghost head.

Then you glue on the wiggly eyes where you want them. Lastly, add on a string or piece of thread and hang them where you please. Thread is best because then it looks like the little ghost is floating in thin air.

Hope you can use these tips for this craft project, a homemade ghost decoration for Halloween. It is fun, easy, simple, and costs next to nothing. Happy Halloween!
