Glowing Ghosts

These apparitions may seem friendly at first, but in the darkness their scary side comes out.

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Snap one or two green eight-hour light sticks so they glow, and insert them into a white balloon.

  2. Step 2

    Inflate the balloon and tie it closed.

  3. Step 3

    Use a black marker to draw a wide-eyed visage. Repeat to make more, then affix ghosts to a wall with transparent tape and lower the lights.

  4. Step 4

    Repeat to make more, then affix ghosts to a wall with transparent tape and lower the lights.

    I just have to say this is a great idea and a low cost decoration. We don't celebrate Halloween as much as you in Australia but we are getting there. This could be used for any occasion such as birthdays , valentines day, christmas or even easter, you decorate the white ballon to the occasion you want. Great job :-)
