Halloween Decoration: Easy Glowing Ghosts

To set up this suitably spooky scene for partygoers or trick-or-treaters, invite a few of our fiendishly clever spirits. They’re easy to make … glow sticks power these unique ghouls for up to 8 hours, so there’s no need for power cords. And they go together in only three short steps … almost as fast as you can say, “Boo!”

Halloween Decoration: Easy Glowing GhostsBackyard Living Magazine

All you need are round, white balloons, cheesecloth cut to lengths of about a yard, and glow sticks. We used green, 4-inch glow sticks, found in party supply stores or on-line.

What to Do
1. Activate a glow stick and insert it into a balloon.

2. Position the knot at the top of the balloon, and use an indelible black marker to draw the eyes and a mouth.

3. Drape the cheesecloth over the balloon, cut a small hole and push the knot through the fabric. Secure with string and hang in the breeze.
