DIY Ghost Leaves

Boo! Say hello to our ghost friend created with silk leaves. Super easy & so cute. We made these little ghouls last year & thought it'd be fun to bring them back! Want to make some with your little goblins? Let's get started.

You'll need white paint, brush, wiggly eyes, glue and silk leaves (we used small & large sizes).

Paint both sides with white paint. Let dry & glue on the eyes. That's it! Super fun Halloween decorations your kids will be proud to show off!

Love how the ends of the leaves started to fray. Adds to the spookiness!

She's so proud! We hung the big guys in our front window and made a garland with the little ones for her room.

Hope you'll try making a few to add to your Halloween decor!
Thanks for stopping by!
