Five Little Ghosties!

Do you remember that rhyme?  No, I'm not sharing a rhyme today, but I am sharing five little ghosts. They're easy, inexpensive to make, and can be turned into a cute garland for Halloween.  Have a peek:
Can you guess what I used to make them?  Have a look:
Take a trip to the dollar store and get out your glue gun because it's time to get started.

The first step is removing the mop strands that are held in place by a piece of plastic.
I used my paint can opener, and it popped right open.
Spread a little glue on the plastic golf ball. 
Add your mop strands.
Continue gluing them around the ball.
Start filling in the areas on the sides...
...until the entire ball is covered.
Take a piece of cotton twine and tie it under the ball.
Add two wiggly eyes and tie a ribbon around the neck.  Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the ribbon, but, I know you can figure it out!
Then hot glue a piece of twine on the back of the head for tying each ghost to the garland.
In order to give this garland a little bit of color, I used some of the orange spider web ribbon in 9" pieces and the purple cut in 7" pieces.  I tied each one in a knot and attached them to each other with thread, then I glued a mini clothespin to the back.
Everything was tied or clipped to a piece of jute and the garland was ready for display!
How's that for an easy Halloween project?

Be sure to stop back next time to see the next project I create with a dollar store mop.
