Before I get to the crafts, did ya’ll notice my new template? Look familiar? It should because it’s the same template I’m using on my top food blog! I needed a more professional look but keeping with my logo and the header on the other template hogged up the whole front page! Lemme know what you think!! Honesty as always please!
Okay, for some fun decorations this Halloween season without the high cost, try these 2 simple and cheap ghost craft projects. Great projects for the kids to help too!
Trash Bag Balloon Ghost
For this, you will need a balloon, string & a large white plastic garbage bag. I would buy those cheap dollar store ones for $2 bucks and the balloons cost about a dollar. Look for any string around your house; maybe some fishing string, yarn, or even old shoe laces. Blow up the balloon and place it inside the bag. Gather the bag under the bottom of the balloon and tie it off with string to make the ghost’s head.
I suggest using permanent markers to decorate a spooooooooooky face! Use another piece of string and add to the top of the ghost to hang it up. Cost per ghost – .50 cents
These are always fun and make the little ones go stare. For this craft project, you’ll need:
- a white helium balloon for each ghost
- sticky tape
- plus two white plastic grocery bags.
Cut the handles off the bags, then cut the remainder of each bag into one inch strips, cutting from the open end to about two inches away from the bottom seam. Get it? It’s gonna look like a fringe skirt so to speak.
Use the clear sticky tape to fasten one cut-up bag halfway around the bottom of the balloon. Put the second cut-up bag around the other half of the balloon.
Draw on a spooky face with markers – and don’t forget to tie a string to the bottom of the balloon to keep the ghost from flying away! I suggest fishing line for this for a more real look. Cost per ghost – .15 cents
