I really don't like Halloween. I much prefer to do a general "fall" decorating. But this year, I decided to add a little "something" to the front yard.
We have a small tree in the front yard and I thought it would be cute to have some dancing ghosts around it.
I picked up the dowel rods and foam balls at Hobby Lobby on sale. The sheets were a combination of sheets I had in my scrap pile and sheets that I picked up at Goodwill for $1.
The girls helped daddy pound the rods into the ground.
Then we put the foam balls on the rods.
After we got them on, we thought they looked a little too small for what we wanted. So we ended up stuffing some plastic bags and wrapping them around the foam balls to make the heads a little bigger.
After draping the sheets, we each had a ghost to decorate.
And our dancing ghosts!!
We still felt that we needed a little something "extra", so My Marine added a black light to the mix. I just LOVE the effect!!
