Make a Ghost on a Stick and do it With Hip-Hop Style

Ghost on a Stick Arrangement
Great for tabletop decor
Halloween is almost here, and That Ghost on a Stick Guy asked me to remind you that there's still time for you to make your fun and crafty ghost on a stick Halloween decor.

It's easy and fun, and you can get the materials inexpensively from your local craft store. If you click play on the video below, the Ghost on a Stick Guy will tell you exactly how to do it.

He's cool and really fun to listen to. You can even dance and sing along--Boo, Boo, Boo!--as you craft your Halloween decorations. But if you're not into Hip-Hop craft instructions, here's what you do.

You only need a few materials

  • A Styrofoam ball
  • Some fabric
  • Some tape (or glue)
  • A black marker
  • A stick, of course

That Ghost on a Stick Guy
Put your Ghost Together

  • Stick your stick into your Styrofoam ball (If you're a kid or a clumsy adult, you may need a little help.)
  • Tape it into place, or glue it if you prefer.
  • Drape some fabric on top. Preferably white--you know, for a ghost. (I used an old tee shirt)
  • Draw on a face--a face, a smile, or just the eyes if you choose.

  • For an interesting look, layer some sheer colorful fabric on top of the white. 
  • Tie your fabric into place with a fabric strip, or use ribbon or yarn. 
  • Now wave your Ghost on a Stivk in the air and say, Boo, Boo, Boo!!

Just for Fun
