Halloween ghost DIY for your trick and treating party


halloween ghost diy Halloween ghost DIY for your trick and treating party

How time flies. I can’t believe Halloween is nearly upon us.

I don’t usually over decorate for Halloween, but here’s a quick and easy DIY if you fancy throwing an impromptu party.

I’ve made a few floating ghosts by reusing my old white paper bell lanterns from a previous party.

It’s pretty simple. All you have to do is cut out some ghost eyes from black card stock and super glue them on, and then place some white netting over. I got my white netting from Ebay. In order to create that floating ghost effect, I used some transparent string attached to Command brand’s removable party ceiling hooks. The hooks are so easy to use, just apply the sticky tape supplied, and press it for a few minutes against the ceiling. You can easily remove the hooks without damage to your ceiling paint. All you have to do is pull the tab along the same plane as the tape. You can see some examples on how to remove the tape here in a previous post.

The ceiling hooks will especially come in handy for Christmas decorations too. I can’t believe Christmas is less than 3 months away. Will you be Trick or Treating with the kids or partying this Halloween? I prefer staying home with a huge tub of candy and seeing all the cute costumes come by. Maybe this year I may throw a little Halloween tea party at home. Check out my cute party ware from Meri Meri.

Wishing you a wonderful day and I’ll be back soon with more interiors post.

  1. This is super cute G! I avoid decorating for Halloween beyond carving pumpkins as it just seems like too much effort but this is a great idea. Kids are going next door for a party this year but we’ll be ready with the sweets for all the kids stopping by – so many!

  2. This looks like so much fun Geraldine! I’ve never hosted a Halloween party before but this post really makes me want to have one this year 🙂

  3. I love these 3M hooks, I have them all over our house but I’ve not tried the ceiling ones yet, I have to say. My eldest (3yrs old) can’t wait for Halloween. She’s already getting her costume sorted and every time we go to the supermarket it’s a battle to get her out of the Halloween aisle!
