We love decorating for Halloween in our family! We love decorating inside and outside. And today I am sharing a project that you could use inside or outside but is super fun, simple and sooooo dang cute! Check out these super cute Spooky Ghost Lights and then stop by my blog HERE for a few extra tips and tricks and to learn where I sourced my supplies.
To create these Spooky Ghost Lights, you will need the following items:
- 16” x 20” thin Plastic sheet
- Wagner HT400 Heat Gun
- White Spray Paint
- Black Vinyl
- Broom/Shovel Handle
- Old Towel
- Masking Tape
- Candelabra Lamp
- Lighting Cord
- Candelabra Socket
- Safety Gloves
You will want to begin by creating some sort of mold to mold your ghost around. We used an old towel that we attached to a shovel handle with masking tape. Feel free to get creative here.
Then we drilled a hole in the center of the sheet of plastic.
Next we simply used the HT400 Heat Gun to heat the plastic up and let it mold around and fall over the mold we created on the towel. This will take some time so be patient with it.
We found it best to work in sections to heat up an area and almost let it fold in on itself. Then move on to the next area.
Be sure to wear your gloves too because this heat gun gets HOT!
After the ghost is created, you will simply spray it with white spray paint.
Then add eyes and a mouth with black vinyl.
Next it is time to add your lighting.
We fed the cord through the hole in the top of the ghost.
Then we connected the cord wiring to the socket by removing the cardboard cylinder and screwing each wire into a screw on the side of the socket (one wire per screw.)
We replaced the cardboard cylinder, screwed the light bulb in and our little cute ghost was now a glowing ghost!
It really is pretty easy to do the lighting, but I do walk through it in a few more details on my blog HERE
