HALLOWEEN GHOSTS MADE FROM GOURDS
I wanted something Halloween-ish yet not too scary for my back porch this year, so I decided to make some spooky Halloween ghosts made from gourds.
– Dried Gourds
– White Spray Paint
– Black Craft paint
– Small Craft Paintbrush
HOW TO MAKE HALLOWEEN GHOSTS MADE FROM GOURDS
HOW TO CLEAN GOURDS
Soak your gourds for two hours in a bucket of water with a splash of dish detergent and a dash of bleach.
After soaking, you should be able to remove the outer crust with a kitchen scrub pad.
Spray paint the gourds white.
After the spray paint has dried thoroughly, paint the faces on with black craft paint.
Cut a length of cheesecloth and place over the top and your "ghost" is complete.
For a much smaller tabletop version, make your ghosts with baby gourds.
