👻 IT’S GHOST SEASON! LET’S GET RID OF SOME SCRAPS WITH THIS NO-SEW PROJECT FOR HALLOWEEN

DIY Hanging Ghosts are a fun and easy way to add to your Halloween decor. In this step-by-step I’ll show you how to create them using fabric scraps and fabric starch. If you have anyone with latex allergies you are in luck – I do too so I figured out how to do it without balloons making it a latex free craft for Halloween.

Once dry, these whimsical ghosties can stand on their own or hang and fly with fishing line. Whether you’re hosting a haunted house party or just want to add some ghostly charm to your space, this DIY project is a must-try.
