Welcome to Fall Project Week! This is my first time hosting a project week for guest bloggers, and I am so excited at all the creative things these ladies have been up to. We will have guest projects all week! So make sure you come back each day to get inspired!
I’m also celebrating with a Fall Tree-Free Card give-away!! Info on how to enter this contest is at the bottom of this post.
For those you that didn’t see it, I was able to guest post on Binge Crafter on 9/26/11. If you missed it, you can check it out here. But I also wanted to share this Primitive Ghost tutorial to you as a jump start to Fall Project week!
I love crafts that are inexpensive, easy, and fast. This project is all three! I recently saw a very similar decoration in a craft store for $26.99!! Talk about saving money by DIY! Today I’ll be sharing the basics of crafting a “Primitive Ghost” to use for your Halloween decor. You can customize the ghost any way you want to at the end, so it leaves alot of options for personalization.
- Fitted sheet (I used a cream color, off-white one for a more primitive, worn look)
- Stack of newspaper
- Packing tape
- · Hang your ghost using small hooks. Attach a small piece of wire to the back of the ghost on the elastic ties to hang on the hook. This will look neat over a table or fireplace where you already have Halloween decorations.
- · Make a stand. This can be as elaborate or as simple as you want. Something as quick as a 2×4 (cut to the height you want) nailed into a flat piece of wood can serve as a quick stand to attach and drape the ghost on so that he appears free-standing.
Linking to these great parties!
