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
