I have been admiring all the Halloween crafts on all the other bogs I follow and I have become very fond of the Ghost globes I see everyone making. I thought about making some of my own but putting my own twist on them. First I started with these three glass cylinders that I already had , but I have seen similar at the Dollar Store.
Then I cut 2 pieces of white tissue paper exactly the size of each cylinder.
I wrapped each cylinder with one sheet of tissue and secured with tape at the back.
Next I selected some black paper to cut out my images. This was all that I had in my paper stash but it will work fine.
Next I free hand drew a ghost image. This took me a few tries and if you can't draw there are numerous images and clip art on the web.
The I applied double sided tape to the back of two ghosts and applied them to the front of each cylinder.
Dont worry that the ghosts don't lay flat since that will be fixed in the next step.
Next I took the second piece of tissue and laid right on top of the first piece. Securing in the back with tape.
Now your Ghost Globe is done! I repeated the same process for the other two cylinders..
Last step is to light them. Since this is tissue paper, I didn't want to use really candles, So I decided to use these battery operated lights from my Christmas decorations.
They work perfect since they give off just enough light and you don't see the glitter..
And here they are glowing eerily just in time for Halloween even if it is a month or so away! But they are quick and easy and so inexpensive! Enjoy!
