To fail is to try in the first place.

I first made these cute fellas about 4 years ago for a work event...a moment of inspiration and tahdahhhhh!!!

These ghosts are really easy to make, and very cheap too. You need a white balloon, marker pen, a 1" fishing float glow stick to put into the balloon before inflating (optional), and white fabric of approx 1.75m square cut with a raggedy edge if indoor use, or use a cheap budget shower curtain or table cloth for outside use. Then the clear acrylic fishing line to suspend the ghost from the ceiling/tree/bannister/doorways wherever you like!

Blow the balloon add the glowstick if desired, cut a tiny centre hole in the fabric to poke the balloon nipple through, use a marker pen to draw on the crazy eyes and other features, use the fishing line to hang it.

Super cheap, super fast, super easy, look amazing !!! Yay!!  Shocked

Love it! I'll bet the glow stick makes him look great at night.
