Want to know how to make hanging ghosts from Pottery Barn for a lot less than you can buy them for? Here's a Pottery Barn knock-off that makes the perfect not-so-spooky Halloween decor for your front porch!
I love Pottery Barn, but I don't always love the price. When I saw their Halloween line this year, I realized that I could easily make Pottery Barn's Hanging Ghosts; at a fraction of the cost!
To make outdoor hanging ghosts you will need:
(affiliate links included for your convenience)
- Styrofoam balls (8", 6", 4")
- Black craft paint
- Small paint brush
- Cheesecloth (I used about 2 yds per ghost, in 1-yard squares, for a total of 6 yds)
- Eye screws (3)
- E6000 Glue
How to make outdoor hanging ghosts instructions:
First, you will want to insert your eye screws into the top of each styrofoam ball using your glue. Let this dry completely. If you're a little bit crazy like me, you will want to paint these white so that they blend in with the ghost.
Next, use your black craft paint to paint ghost eyes on each styrofoam ball. Let dry completely.
Take (2) 1-yard squares and place them over the top each styrofoam ball.
Using scissors, cut "rips" in the cheesecloth.
Take each shred in your hand and stretch it down. This will create a tattered look in the cheesecloth.
