[Make] Ghosts... faster than you can say "Boo!"

Here's a quick and easy way to add some "spook" to the fall decor.

[a simple tutorial]

face:  glue on googly eyes and a mouth cut from black paper
body:  cut 1/2 inch strips to make a flowy "skirt"

That's it, done!

This idea originally started as a Halloween Card project for Smarty Pant's school.  The boys and I had a great time collaborating. The cards will be given to the children in our community's foster care system. 

my kids had a blast painting the card (black & blue foam) with several different colors of glitter glue.
except for the beak & googly eyes, the owl was created entirely with my creative memories circle and oval-shaped paper cutters.

So this is about it for my Halloween decor.  It's fun without being macabre, and my kids get a kick out of the "ghosts".  I'm just happy that I  finally found a place to display my little pumpkin collection.

 i just need to find (or make) a couple of small mercury glass ones to complete this "vignette". 

Have a great Friday!
