DIY Your Own Friendly Ghost

Here’s What You’ll Need To Create This Happy Halloween Decoration

Here’s How To Make Your Own Floating Ghost

  1. First, help your ghost float! Take your balloon, inflate to its maximum diameter, and tie balloon end securely.
  2. Next, add some personality with an expressive face. Keeping balloon end upward, we wanted these ghosts to be friendly and fun, so we drew smiles onto their faces.
  3. Prep your wispy tulle dressing. Take your bolt of tulle and roughly trim 3 wide rectangles. Layer these rectangles on top of each other and trim a hole in the center.
  4. Dress your ghoul! Layer each rectangle over the balloon end, letting the fabric fall naturally. Weave end through tulle hole.
  5. Finally, let your ghost fly. Tie balloon end with curling ribbon and display.
