Day Twenty Six: DIY Ghosts
After today, I’ll only have five more Halloween posts left. I can’t believe how fast this has gone by. I’ve had a lot of fun and I hope you’ve all enjoyed my posts. I have so many more ideas to post, I just wish Halloween season was two months long. Hopefully you all decide to stick around after Halloween when I get back to my regularly scheduled blogging.
Enough pandering, on to the Halloween blog.
Today, I want to share with you with a few cool ghost-related activities.
This first one, from the MAKE Zine blog, tells you how to make a pretty cool looking ghost with…chicken wire.
Here’s the final product. Click on the picture for instructions and a few other ghost-related things…
But, if you want a ghost decoration that is a little more practical and fun, then check out this one. My wife found it while checking her normal blogroll and I think it’s absolutely darling.
The particular blog she pointed me to is called Everyday is a Crafting Day!
Here’s a picture of the finished product. Click on the ghost picture to learn how to make it (and you should…it’s awesome and super easy to make!)
Ghostly Good Times
And then, last but not least, here’s a picture of a craft my daughter made in daycare. Here’s what the did: They took white paint and black paper. They then took my daughter’s shoes off and let her get paint all over them. I think it’s best to use a mini paint roller and just roll them on your kid’s feet – but really, the choice is yours. It’s Halloween – go crazy.
Then, my daughter stepped on the black paper with her painted feet, waited for it to dry, added a few lines and dots with a permanent marker, et voila!
These ghosts are stinkin' cute!
For a little variety, it would probably be a lot of fun to do this with either black light paint or glow-in-the-dark paint. Either way, it’s a fun craft to do with your little ones.
Hopefully these crafts give you some last minute ideas.
