BOO! THIS GHOST FAMILY IS THE PERFECT HALLOWEEN CRAFT. HERE IS WHAT WE USED TO MAKE IT:
To start, wrap your yarn around your piece of cardboard. You want to keep wrapping it around until it is about as thick as shown below. You may need to wrap it more or less depending on how thick your yarn is.
Cut the end of the thread connected to the yarn ball. Then your are going to slide the yarn off the cardboard carefully. After that tie a piece of yarn around the top of the yarn loops.
Next thread another piece of yarn through the top part of the loop and tie it at the top.
You are then going to cut the bottom loop so that all the ends are loose.
Separate about ten strands on each side and tie off the ends. Then tie off the bottom of your ghost.
Out of felt cut a face out for your ghost friend. You can make a happy ghost face or a silly face. Wherever your imagination leads you! You are then going to either hot glue or fabric glue your face to the head of your ghost.
Trim all the loose yarn threads and even out the ends.
Repeat these steps for as many ghosts as you would like to add to your ghost family.
You are now done and have spooktacular ghost family!
