Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because it allows for such whimsical crafting and decorating. I like to dream up out-of-the-box color palettes for the holidays in my home decor and Halloween is so much fun to play with. I hope you enjoy this cute DIY as much as I did.

-Ghost cut-out. I got mine at Party City (2.99) Linked here.
-Yarn. Any and all. I recommend different textures as it gives your wall hanging more depth and variety. I purchased all of mine at Michael's.
-A ruler (this isn't a necessity) You'll see in my photos that my cut isn't perfect. I eye-balled it but if you are a stickler for precision, be my guest.
-Black paint (you could use a sharpie if you don't have paint/want to paint!)

Cut your yarn to your desired length. What I love about this craft is that you can create it to fill a space in your home that you need filled. I was looking for something to go above Ever's kitchen and I decided why not make my own. So here we are. Cut as much as you think you'll need. Don't worry if it is not enough- you can go back and add more as needed. You can also use my photos for an approximate reference point.

Glue away. I used a glue gun but if you want to make it more of a kid friendly craft you can certainly try a different glue. I, for one, love any excuse to use my glue gun. It doesn't really matter if the strings of yarn are even where you are gluing because that part won't show! Just make sure you are gluing to the back side of the ghost. Pro Tip: glue one piece of yarn at a time or the glue will dry too fast.

Now you are ready to decorate your ghost. On the left is what the ghost looks like when you purchase it. Now, you can totally use the ghost the way it comes, but I decided to draw on my own face to keep it a little more simple. All I did was re-create the face part of it. Feel free to get creative and draw any kind of face you like- or even leave it blank. Another fun idea would be to spray paint it a fun color like gold metallic!
