Additional Materials
Craft ribbon of your choice (we used several different types that ranged between 1/8 inch [3mm] to 3/8 inch [8 mm] in size Buttons or decorative eyes Hot melt glue gun 4 inch [10 cm] x 7 inch [approximately 18 cm] stiff cardboard Scissors


GHOSTS Wrap yarn 40 times around the cardboard in the 7 inch direction Lace a 6 inch [approximately 15 cm.] piece of yarn under all the yarn wrapped on the cardboard and tie tightly.

Note: If you are going to hang your ghost (as we did from a decorated chandelier), you can use one end of a long piece of craft ribbon to tie off at this step instead.

Cut yarn at bottom of cardboard.

Tie a piece of craft ribbon around all the yarn to make the head.

Trim to achieve the look that you want.

Glue on eyes

Optional: If you wish to hang your ghost from something (we hung ours from a chandelier that had been decorated with autumn leaves), either use a long piece of ribbon to tie off the pom-pom in step 2 or pass a ribbon through yarn on the top of the head and tie it off inconspicuously.

Then, tie the other end of the ribbon to whatever you want to hang the ghost on.

Note: If the attachment will show, tying it in a bow can add a nice decorative touch!
