gauzy ghosts


Because I love to see other people's decorations for the holidays, I thought I would share these ones that are hanging from my chandelier in my dining room (that I am trying to turn in to a library/den/music room if that's even possible).  I made them 3 or 4 years ago after watching Martha make them on her show.  I have hung them from my lanterns above my fireplace before, but I think I like them hanging in this front room.  They are made from gauze (or you can use cheese cloth) and watered down glue hung over a balloon until dry.  Really easy and really cool. Here's Martha's version.  Anyways, I would love for you to share your Fall/Halloween decorations with me.  I really do love seeing what everyone else is doing.  To answer the question of a blogger, I have the pumpkin from the giveaway (mine, not the one up for grabs) hanging in that front room from the knob of the corner cabinet.  That room has most of the decorations and it's great because it's the first room you see when you walk in.  I am excited to pick a winner for the giveaway tomorrow night.  I might to a tutorial on this one because it really is simple.  We'll see.

We have 2 of the exact ghost. I've never thought of hanging them, though! Love that idea.

Cute project!! We make ghost cookies at my house. Nutter butter cookies dipped 2/3 into melted white chocolate and let drip as much as possible. mini chocolate chips for eyes. Fun and easy!! Have a blessed day!!

Your house looks so very festive. The wall color is perfect for the occasion!

very cool! I might have to try it (if I don't run out of time - ha!) and how funny....we are working on using our dining room as a den area too!! I'm glad we are not the only weird ones who don't use it as a dining room.
