These days it is popular to take stripped tree branches and decorate them with all kinds of fun items like tissue paper flowers, fairies or paper ornaments. So it came to me...a vision, why not hang some of these ghosts from some old branches and put them in a fun container. If I would have found thicker branches I would have tied more ghosts on, as these were a bit flimsy.
SO, what are the ghosts made of??? Lollipops, square Kleenex & white tulle or string. (I used Blow Pops, the tops are a bit larger then a regular Dum Dum lollipop) I took two Kleenex and stacked them on top of each other, placed a lollipop in the center and draped the Kleenex over the top of the lollipop then wrap tulle or string around the "neck of the ghost" just under the top of the lollipop. At this point you can use a felt tip black pen and draw on some black circles for the eyes. Remember that the ink will bleed/ spread since you are drawing on Kleenex, so start out small. If your leave your string long enough you can use that to tie your ghost to branches, a wreath or hang them from the ceiling. Fill up a large container of branches with these ghosts and take them into the classroom. One ghost lollipop for each classmate. When the kids have taken all of the favors, leave the decorative container for the teacher. I wrapped a pretty orange ribbon around my container and used a tag from Good Gravy Designs.
