Country Living Inspired Five Minute Ghosts

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Five Minute GhostsHalloween is almost here but it’s not too late for a few last-minute decorations! All you need is something simple and I have just the thing…my five minute ghosts! You can’t get much easier than these spooky little guys!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Super Easy Five Minute Ghost As soon as I saw these in Country Living, I knew I would have to try them! My house is mostly decorated for fall this year…not much Halloween…so I need a few easy little last-minute Halloween-y touches to impress the grands!

Here’s what you need:
  • Tissue paper honeycomb bells (I found mine in the wedding section at Party City)
  • Black construction paper
  • Glue dots
  • Cheesecloth (I found mine at Hobby Lobby)
And here’s what you do:
  1. Assemble the bells as directed
  2. Cut elongated shapes from the construction paper for eyes and a mouth
  3. Attach the eyes and mouth to the bell with glue dots
  4. Drape the bell with a section of cheesecloth

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Five Minute GhostsAnd…taaa daaa!…could it be any easier? They are just the right combination of spooky and cute for my little grands! You could even hang them since they come with a loop which could be threaded through the cheesecloth.

Baby Kitty HalloweenAnd finally…Baby Kitty wants to show you his Halloween costume…Captain Kidd-y! With a name like Baby Kitty, a guy has to go for a really masculine look so that the other trick-or-treaters won’t make fun of him, you know! Aaargh! Are you heading out to trick-or-treat this Halloween, too?
