Take 2 kitchen paper towels . Crush one and keep it inside the other one. Tie it using a rope or elastic band. Draw eyes using sharpie. This is the easiest and cheapest way to make ghosts. But if you are going to hang the ghost outdoors then paper towel wont work. White plastic bags or trash bags work out fine even if there's rain or snow or wind. But instead we used a plastic mattress cover from dollar tree (shower curtain and party tablecloth was out of stock in my dollar tree) . If the ghosts are going to be outside why not make glow in the dark ghosts..so here it goes
Materials we used
1. Plastic mattress cover from dollar tree
2. Styrofoam balls in various sizes from dollar tree
3. Glow in the dark paint from here
5. Elastic bands
7.Needle and thread
How we did
1. We painted the styrofoam balls first.
2. Cut the mattress cover into rectangular shaped pieces- just eyeballed it.
3.While the paint was drying we made a few ordinary ghosts. Crushed a rectangle and kept it inside the
another rectangle piece .Put the elastic band and draw eyes with sharpie.
4,After the paint dried we put one styrofoam ball in each rectangle piece and made glow in the dark ghosts.
5.We made about 20 ghosts and tied them to the trees using needle and thread.
Here is the glow in the dark ghost in action
