Life sized Lawn Ghosts

By:

Stand back and watch as these life-size lawn ghosts put on a show for the entire neighborhood. These scary Halloween decorations by Terri O are sure to spook trick-or-treaters.

 

Materials:

  • 6 White sheets cut in half (cut across the width)
  • 6 Wooden steaks about 4 to 5 feet long
  • 6 Plastic trash bags (or recycled grocery bags)
  • Masking tape
  • Newspaper
  • Black acrylic paint and brush
  • Fishing line


Instructions:

  1. Pound steaks into the ground so they are stable. I put mine in a circle or around a tree.
     
  2. Crumble up newspaper and stuff it into the corner of a trash bag. Put enough in to make a normal size head.
     
  3. Wrap masking tape around it and attach it to the wooden steak.
     
  4. Drape one sheet over the trash bag and tie a small piece of fishing line loosely around the neck. Do this for all six steaks placing them about 3 feet apart.
     
  5. Grabbing a corner of each sheet tie them together to create the illusion of them holding hands.
     
  6. Using black paint, paint a face for each one.
     
  7. At the end of the holiday just wash the sheet and put the steaks away for next year.
