I ain’t afraid of no ghost…

I have been so into decorating and crafting this Halloween.  My children and I put together a real quick, cheap and easy Halloween craft last week using white muslin, styrofoam balls and wooden dowel rods.   The result was a spooky ghost family greeting our front door guest.  Here’s a quick tutorial of the process.

Materials for 4 ghosts:

1 yd of white muslin

4 styrofoam balls (Ours were around 4 inches)

Liquid starch and large bowl for soaking muslin

2 dowel rods

Black craft paint and paint brushes

Some sort of container to prop your ghost up in…I used a tin bucket used for planting…repurposed as a ghost planter.

Cut dowels to desired lengths.  Poke one end of each dowel into a styrofoam ball.  Place dowel into container.

Cut muslin into 4 square sections…long enough to drape and hang down and cover all if not most of the dowel.

Soak muslin in liquid starch.  Wring out and drape over styrofoam ball.  Allow to dry completely.

Once starch is dry paint a face on each ghost with black craft paint.

Place container at front door as a greeting for your Halloween guest!

…cutest costume contest…

Halloween is just around the corner…and that means it is time for decorations, costumes and candy!

I remember when my children were little.  I had their costumes planned out months in advance and I made each of them  until they were about 5 years old.  My kids have been bubble bees, pumpkins, scare crows, and sponge bob, just to name a few.  And I have everyone of them captured on film.  Those photos make me smile and laugh every time I look at them.

I want to give you the opportunity to keep those same memories alive and participate in a contest as well.  Teresa Hill Photography is sponsoring a contest: The Cutest Costume Contest for children ages 0-8.  Each entry to the contest will be judged by your families and friends via facebook.  The winning entry receives a free family photo session.  Contact me via email, comment, or text message for more details and to schedule your session.  Space is limited so act fast to secure your spot.
