A Steno Pad for My ThoughtsBlah, Blah, Blah. Connect the dots. This blog is now an archive only. No new entries will be posted, please visit our new blog here.
Here is another easy Halloween project from my Halloween House. These are for Halloween Ghost Walkers cause ghosts without legs don’t really exist but ghosts with legs are all together real.
You just need some white fabric, bump chenille pipe cleaners and some glue.
1. Cut a circle from a piece of white cotton fabric that is about 5″ wide.
2. Using white craft glue, squeeze enough on the fabric to saturate it completely. I just wad mine into a ball to make sure it gets all over the fibers.
3. Form the gluey fabric piece over your finger to make a ghost like shape. Form the folds so you have a front section that is fairly flat (without any folds) so that you can draw a face on it later.
4. Place the wet gluey ghost shape on a piece of plastic to dry. It should dry in 2-4 hours.
5. Make the legs which are just two sections of bump chenille pipe cleaners folded in half. To make it extra cute, I like to bend the bottom tips to look like little feet.
6. After the ghost body is dry, use some hot glue to secure the legs in the ghost form.
7. Using a fine point permanent marker, draw a face on your ghost pal.
8. Add necessary props and you’re done! I added a top hat to this one. Another prop option is to make a halloween ball using a fun candy foil wrapper you saved because the graphics were too cool to throw away.
This candy wrapper I saved and then wrapped around a wooden ball.
Which I then glued a walking ghost on top of around the Halloween House.
And here are two other ghost walkers I made.
This one features a vintage paper ax so if you wanted to make one here is the outline of the ax.
And finally, here is the last ghost walker I made carrying a vintage honeycomb pumpkin.
