Friendly Bottle Ghost!

Like I said in an earlier post this week, I finally got in the Halloween Spirit and the other day Lu and I made these cute ghost that I saw here. The only thing I did different than what she did in her tutorial was using smaller 20 oz bottles instead of 2 liter bottles. I love the way the turned out! They were SUPER SIMPLE and only needed a few things, most of which is usually laying around the house. I grabbed the bottles from the recycling bin, the construction paper and glue already on hand.
First put a few drops of paint ing (for this step I put just a DROP of water to help the paint coat easier and faster it worked well)
Shake or as in Lu's case she is just turning it over and over untl she got the desired results she wanted :)
*Have the adult cut 3 circles, 2 smaller and 1 large* Then Lu glued them on.
Lu's the ghost in the middle, can you see shes making the *oooo* sound LOL! These were so cute and I put one on each end table, I love it!
to see more great crafts and kid friendly items go here and here


  1. cute picture of her with the craft! fun idea!

  2. So cute. I think we will make these tomorrow. One last Halloween craft.

  3. Oh! I love those! What a quick and easy and fun Halloween craft. I think a display of several of those in different bottle sizes and shapes would be wonderful!

  4. That is one of my favorite Halloween projects. Easy and cute.

  5. How cool! I love that they are painting but in a bottle, which, of course, equals no mess. Think of the possibilities.....a red bottle made into Santa, another white one for angels, black for a penguin......should i continue :) We are saving these from now on!
