Halloween Leaf Ghosts!

It's Halloween this weekend and I am sure some of you will be hosting Halloween parties or are just decorating your homes to be ghoulish and gruesome. Instead of spending a fortune on decorations from the shop, why not save money and have some fun by creating these amazing decorations using autumn leaves. It couldn't be easier...


My leaf ghosts
1. Firstly head outdoors and choose some autumn leaves to make your ghosts with. We chose maple and oak leaves as we think they are the best ghost like shapes.


Acer leaves are great for this craft project

2. Make sure the leaves are nice and dry and then paint them white. It may take a few coats of paint to make them really nice and white.


Painting is ALWAYS fun


3. Once the paint is dry simply draw on eyes and a big ghosty mouth.


Carefully draw the eyes and mouth

We think if you made lots of these you could make a really fabulous mobile from these leaf ghosts, but remember to paint both sides of the leaf if you are doing this.


My ghost leaves look great with the other decorations I have made

Happy Halloween everyone!

Hugs & kisses,
