Pottery Barn knock-off hanging ghosts

0

I have a confession to make; please don’t judge. I love Pottery Barn, I really do – but I don’t always love the price. So when I saw their Halloween line of décor last year, I realized that I could easily make their hanging ghosts at a fraction of the cost!

So I set about creating my own version of PB’s hanging ghosts. And you can do the same, simply, inexpensively and quickly!

You will need:

  • Styrofoam balls (8″, 6″, 4″)
  • Black craft paint
  • Small paint brush
  • Cheese cloth (I used about 2 yards per ghost, in 1 yard squares, for a total of 6 yards)
  • Eye screws (3)
  • E6000, wood or other similar glue

 

  1. First, you will want to insert your eye screws into the top of each Styrofoam ball using your glue. Let this dry completely. If you’re a little bit crazy like me, you will want to paint these white so that they blend in with the ghost.
  2. Next, use your black craft paint to paint ghost eyes on each Styrofoam ball. Let dry completely.
  3. Take (2) 1-yard squares and place them over top each Styrofoam ball.
  4. Using scissors, cut “rips” in the cheesecloth.
  5. Take each shred in your hand and stretch is down. This will create a tattered look in the cheesecloth.
  6. Repeat with the other two Styrofoam balls and hang!

The originals retail for about $59 and my knock-off ones cost less than $15 for all three!!

Pretty cute, huh? I love my new hanging ghosts! And I am so happy to finally have some more cute outdoor Halloween decor!

So if you come trick or treating this year, you will be sure to meet my new little ghost friends!

Happy crafting!
