Ghostie Garland


After I made the ghost toy the other day, I realized that the same ghosties would be frighteningly cute as a garland...and so here we are! This was really quick to make and I love how it looks hanging over our fireplace.

Ghostie Garland

Making your own not-so-spooky garland is easy! Here's how:

Ghostie Garland

You will need:

White felt
Black embroidery floss
Drinking straw (Cut into short pieces)
String or yarn
Scissors
Needle
Hot glue gun

To make the ghosties, cut out the shapes from felt, then embroider the faces. Make some of them facing the opposite direction. You'll need a bunch...however many you want on your garland. (I made 11)

Add a bead of hot glue to the back of each ghostie to attach a straw piece. For mine, I staggered the height of the straws so that it looks like the ghosts are sort of floating along, and not all in a straight line. It's up to you though!

Thread a string through the straws and tie a loop in each end of the string.

Hang the garland and watch the ghosties fly!

  1. EEEPS! I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS! I am sort of a garland junkie (There are 4 hanging in my home right now, and I have 2 more to put together...it's seriously a happy illness.) And what a genius idea to use the drinking straw!

  12. Adorable. I think they'd be even cuter with rosy cheeks, or would that be too much?
