how to make more spooky ghostly fun
My contractor took down the ceiling fan in my sunroom and put it in the construction dumpster before I could remove the four little glass light shades. So into the dumpster I went to rescue them.
Here is how I turned those four ceiling fan-light shades into more spooky ghostly fun for my grandkids.
Here is where these little ghosts started. Supply list: light shades, man’s handkerchief, styrofoam balls, black tag, hole punch, scissors, rubber bands, battery operated tea light, and glue gun.
First, the little ghosts need a head. A Styrofoam ball fits just fine but needs a cover. Cut a man’s handkerchief into four squares to cover the Styrofoam balls to create the ghost heads. Then use a rubber band to gather the cloth covering the ghost head.
Using a hole punch cut eyes from black tags (or paper) then cut ovals with scissors for the mouth. Glue the eyes and mouth on the ghost heads.
Then place the heads on the glass shades to complete the ghosts.
There you have it, quick and easy.I decided to place a host at each plate in my Halloween Tablescape using the ghosts as place card holders. There you have it, quick and easy.Don’t forget that the Vintage Charm party opens at 8:00am EST Thursday, October 27th, we would love to see you there!
