Definitely use the pool noodles! They would work perfectly and can be covered in fabric. I live in texas and they sell them year round here.. however you may have to wait till summer to get some =(

I have this FANTASTIC idea for one of my partner's themes but there's a small chance I'll mess it all up.. is anyone else nervous like I am about ruining undies that your partner bought??

I don't want to just play it safe with my crafting here, but I also don't want to ruin anything... I think I'll practice on scrap fabric first..

I made these cute little spooky guys in about 20 minutes if you include paint-drying time. =) They look GREAT and glow like crazy but of course, my cell phone camera didn't capture the amazing glowness.

*These aren't my idea, I saw something like this on a blog a long time ago and don't have a link for it*

How to make them

1. Collect a few milk jugs, I used gallon sized ones but I'm sure skinny ghosts from the half-gallon jugs would look great too. If you can't drink that much milk before Halloween, do what I did and ask friends/family!

2. I painted the caps black because I had no white paint, but I think they'd blend in more if they were white. But definitely paint them because mine were a mix of blue and red and that's SO not Halloweeny

3. Alignt them up so that all the sides with the label are facing the back. Using black acrylic paint (I bet a sharpie would work too), paint some ghoulish faces.. I made mine up as I went along.

4. I used a razor and cut out a hole in the  back, using the sticker label as a guide.

5. Then I divided a strand of 100 orange Halloween lights ($3.50 at Walmart) into 4 parts and shoved them inside.. I think clear lights would look better because Ghosts are white and not orange.. but its all I could find.

Then plug them in and enjoy!

Maybe a small needlepoint project? They sell them in tiny sizes (2" x2") and many elderly are familiar with this technique. Its small enough to not flare up arthritis, etc.

My grandmother loves sewing sequins as decorations onto dishcloths, fabric calendars, etc. Maybe she would like that?
