I love this DIY so much because you only need a few things
-Yarn in colors of your choice (I used Blush, Cream, and Mustard)
Mini Pom Poms
-Board book that is about 6-6.5″ long or a similar sturdy board. The bigger the board, the longer the ghost
-Glue gun or tacky glue or glue of some sort

Easy Ghost Garland Tutorial

Step 1:

Wrap yarn around board book, I wrapped mine around about 50 times but this will depend on length of board, and thickness of yarn

kid’s books make the perfect sturdy board

Step 2:

Take a piece of yarn about 10″ long and tie it around the top of the bundle of yarn. Carefully remove bundle from board/book.

Step 3:

Lay the bundle carefully on the counter and cut another piece of yarn 10″. About 1/4-1/3 of the way down on the yarn, tie the piece of yarn around the bundle to create the ghost’s head.

Step 4:

After you have tied off the ghost head, pick up the ghost, slide your scissors along the bottom, and cut the loops to create the fringe bottom.

Stepe 5:

Grab your glue and place a small drop on the back of a Pom Pom. Place them on the had for eyes

That’s it! You are done. You can tie the ghosts to a long piece of yarn for your garland, or hang them wherever you would like.
