Having a munchkin of my own and a neighbourhood full of young kiddos means coming up with Halloween decor that is more creepy-cute than horror-scary, a task that has turned out to be much easier said than done, akk!
Thankfully my refashionista brain remembered an oldie but goodie ghost creating method from my childhood:
Raid your kitchen drawers and whip up my cute and quirky and oh-so easy upcycled DIY packing tape ghost!
Grab a roll or 2 of packing tape, plastic wrap and a large-ish sized doll.
Completely wrap the doll in plastic wrap (and feel incredibly bad doing it).
Wrap the plastic covered doll in 5 or more layers of packing tape (and feel even worse doing it).
Once you’re happy with the thickness of the tape carefully chop up the back of the plastic/tape wrappings, gently pull off the ghostly cocoon and free your grateful dolly.
Tape up the back and any other open areas.
Et voila! A fantastic (yet delicate) ghostly figure is born!
Display your Halloween spirit peeking out from some foliage
or eerily floating in the window:
