Scary Ghosts!

 I finally decided that I needed to make some sort of Halloween decorations with my kiddos.  As I was looking around my house and stumbled onto some Walmart bags, which gave me the perfect idea!  So we made Scary Ghosts to put in a tree in our front yard!  
Here is how they turned out...
They were super easy to do, and my children loved making them!  All you need is...
White Trash Bags
Grocery Bags
Sharpy (to color the faces)
Scissors 
Twine (I think I use this in practically everything I do!)
Now all you do is stuff the garbage bag with the grocery bags to make the head.  Then tie it off with the twine.
Then color on the faces.  I just made eyeballs (because my children where anxious to see the Ghosts!)  I wish you all could hear my son make a "ghost noise", it is SO funny!
Just hang them from the tree and you are done!
They are such cute little Ghosts!

I found you over on One Tough Mother's Tuesday party. These look like so much fun! If only I had a tree in my yard to hang these in. I'll have to figure something out, these would be great. Well and cleverly done!
