And I decided to show you what we’re making… it’s really cute!

Here’s our project:

Here’s what you need to make this project

hangers.jpg  tools.jpg

White hangers, Needle Nose pliers, wire cutters, Hot glue, Tuille (cut into 30×30 sections, buy it in a 60″ width and fold in half and cut at 30″ intervals)  ribbon cut into a short and a longer length, and Styrofoam Balls, which I didn’t photograph…

So…

Step 1: With wire cutters, cut the wire hanger at each end of the long piece:

Next, use the needle nose pliers to curl in the ends to make them decorative, but also to protect from the sharpness of the cut ends…

Next: cut off the curly cue end of the top of the hanger

Add a glob of hot glue to the top of the exposed end that you just cut and push on a styrofoam ball (any size is fine, I used 3″ balls)

The glue will push down along the wire and stick well to the styrofoam ball as you can see above…

Next, Lay a piece of tuille on a flat surface and put the head of your ghost inside at the fold

Cinch at the ‘neck’ with a piece of ribbon and tie into a bow.

Finally decorate however you’d like.. little craft hats, googlie eyes, whatever suits your fancy…  🙂  I used a hat and attached the ribbon to hang my ghostie from with a blob of hot glue on top of the hat…   If you go without the hat, you could attach the ribbon to the neck bow and hang from there… 🙂

Have fun!
