DIY Halloween Yarn Ghosts!


Making a fun craft with your kids doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, or time. In fact, this fun Halloween craft only cost me $4.00! And you might already have all the supplies you need. Check out my simple steps to make your very own DIY Halloween Yarn Ghosts!



Supply List:
White, Orange, and Black Yarn (Or just 1 color if you'd rather)
Googly Eyes
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun + Sticks (Or Elmer’s Glue)
A piece of cardboard (or a book) approx. 7” long

Step 1:



Cut two pieces of yarn approximately 12" in length. They do not need to be exact. Set them aside. These are going to be used for ties.

Step 2:

Take the yarn and hold the end down on your piece of cardboard. This is to hold the yarn in place before you start wrapping the cardboard with it.

Step 3: 
Wrap the yarn around the cardboard 40 times to create a nice and fluffy ghost. I used Medium, 4 Yarn. If you use thicker yarn, you can cut down on the number of wraps.

Once you have completed 40 wraps, then cut the end of the yarn.

Step 4:

Take one of the pieces of yarn that you set aside at the beginning of this DIY and slide it underneath the wrapped yarn.

Step 5:

Pull the string up to the top of the yarn and tie it in a double knot. Try to make it a tight knot, so that all the yarn is bundled nicely together.

Step 6:
Once it's tied in a knot, you can slide the yarn off the cardboard. Keep the yarn held in your hand so you can cut it.

Step 7:

While holding the yarn, pull the yarn taut with the scissors and cut the bottom end.


Once the yarn is cut, it will look like this.

Step 8:

Group the yarn together and take the last piece of yarn that you set aside at the beginning of the DIY and place it underneath the grouping of yarn. Allow enough room for the ghosts head. Once you like the size, tie the yarn in a double knot.

Step 9:

If you have any longer strands of yarn, you can cut them so they don't stick out. I like a little unevenness to make it a little more fluffy looking. But one piece really stuck out, so I cut it.

Then, flip the ghost over, so the knot you tied for the head is in the back.

Repeat these steps to create as many ghosts, in as many colors as you like, for your own perfectly-sized garland. I made a total of 16 ghosts to hang nicely on our mantle.




Step 10:

Glue time! Either use your glue gun or Elmer's Glue and attach some fun googly eyes on your ghosts. Note: Make sure the double knot is on the backside.



Step 11: 

I had some fun switching up the different sized googly eyes! I did combos of big and small, just one large eye, two regular sizes eyes, and so on. You can do whatever you like to make them your own.

Step 12:

Now it's time to lace all the ghosts together. I used white yarn because our mantle is white, but you can use any color you like. Take one end of your yarn and lace it through the head of each ghost till you get to the last one. Make sure you give yourself some slack at the end and the beginning for draping. Once you get the right length, cut the end of the yarn.

Step 13:




Lastly, it's time to hang your fun creation! These cute Halloween Yarn Ghosts are perfect to display on a mantle, hang over a window, on a wall, or even a book shelf! In fact, you can make a few ghosts and place them around your house for a fun decorative touch here and there.

I hope you enjoyed my Halloween Yarn Ghost DIY. If you and/or your kids make them, please share! I would love to see!

  23. These little yarn ๐Ÿงถ buddIes are so cute! I know my grandkids would love to make these - not just for decorating either! I can see them now mixing the yarn up so their ghosts would be made up of different colors of yarn. Just like the way they spray different colors on their hair now and then. Plus put a little glitter on their hair and on their ghosts. They might even have contests to see whose ghost is scarier or prettier, etc. Pinning for future crafting activities. Thank you for sharing this pretty clever idea ๐Ÿ˜

  25. Given below are some tips that will help you to write the perfect cdr report.
    First and foremost you have to be very clear about the guidelines and specification set by EA engineers australia skills assessment booklet
    Provide only the details required by EA and avoid putting unnecessary ones. Stick to the booklet to get the right idea
    Rather than focussing on your previous employer or boast about your position in the company or your team or how big the company was, emphasize your role and what you did.
    Write specific details about your past work experience in the relevant fields, so as to prove your competencies.
    Do not mention any knowledge or skill that you won’t be able to substantiate.
