👻 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.
A glass w/balloon or other rounded top to use as a form
Felt or fabric for eyes / mouth
Fishing line if you want to hang
Patience (it takes 12-20 hrs to dry)

How to Make a Teacher Appreciation Oven Mitt with your Cutting Machine
Using your Cricut, Silhouette or Scan ‘N Cut, a potholder or oven mitt from the Dollar Tree and my Teacher Thank You Oven Mitt Bundle (links to buy the bundle are at the bottom of this post) you can make a fun and useful gift for a teacher! Just add baking mix and spoon or spatula to finish it off.
The Dollar Tree is a great place to get craft supplies on a budget without sacrificing the end results! I had a great time picking out supplies for this Halloween Round Sign that incorporates one of the 4 designs in my Halloween Round Sign SVG and Cut file bundle (links to buy the bundle are at the bottom of this post).
1 package of googly eyes (all 125 are on my sign!)
Halloween Round Sign SVG and Cut file bundle
light sand paper / sanding block
glue gun / glue
wire cutters (don’t ruin your scissors cutting apart the rose pick!)
fabric scissors (to cut your ribbon)
Once I had my supplies I put my Halloween round sign together in less than an hour.
It would be a fun craft to do with kids too – but you might want to use tack glue instead of a glue gun so they don’t burn themselves gluing on all those googly eyes! (jump to the video)
SAND. First lightly sand your charger and roughen up the surface so the vinyl and glue will stick well.
ADD DESIGN. Next, cut your adhesive vinyl and put it in the center of the plate using transfer tape.
MAKE BOW. I made a quick and easy bow by cutting 8-12″ lengths of mesh and ribbon and laying them out in an X formation. Then I grabbed and pinched them in the middle and wrapped it with the wire from the rose with the spooky eye to hold it together. Next I fluffed the ribbon and added more roses and a spider by pushing the wire for the accent pieces through the center so they were held in place too.
ADD RIBBON HANGER. I scratched the back of the plate with the edge of a screwdriver to help the hot glue hold the ribbon in place better. Glue the ribbon and then reinforce the ribbon by gluing pieces of cardboard across the ribbon in the opposite direction. I used the packaging from the googly eyes (waste not, want not – right?)
ADD BOW. Scratch the front of the plate with your screwdriver where the center of your bow will be glued for best results and hot glue the bow where desired.
GLUE ON THE GOOGLY EYES! This was my favorite part! I used all 125 eyes in my package from the Dollar Tree. I started by spacing the biggest eyes around the edge of the plate and then just filled in the rest until there were no eyes and no space left.
DECIDE WHERE TO HANG IT. That’s it! It’s so simple and fun!
