Human Ghost Display

When I first saw these I just fell in love. These guys are so creepy and in the right place during our Halloween party they will scare the living daylights out of my guests. Unfortunately, then I noticed their size. They are only 5′ tall. That won’t scare anyone unless they’re little kids. 5′ is usually not all that scary. I don’t mean any offense to anyone who is that size, it’s just that I can’t imagine a grown man being too frightened by it. I stand at 5’10” and I’m sorry, but that is not going to do anything to me. I guess I could put it on a box, so it appears bigger. Of course then the other thing that pissed me off was the way they advertise them. I thought that you got 3 of them for $129 since the item is called Human Ghost Display and show 3 in the picture, but I should have known better. I’m not sure it’s worth that if they don’t even make a sound, but I think I may be able to make them myself. Off to the drawing board! If you’re not the crafty type then you can buy your single ghost here.

DIY Ghosts

So, this is the new yard decoration we are trying this year. All you need is a roll of chicken wire and some wire cutters and just start forming your body. Don’t forget to use some work gloves or you’ll end up with some bloody ghosts, which I guess is okay if that’s the look you’re going for. When it’s done you spray it with glow in the dark paint and place it somewhat far from the sidewalk. If it’s too close your guests will be able to see the chicken wire and it won’t be as spooky. I am still in the process of forming the bodies, but it’s a lot easier than I thought it would be. I’m doing three of them that I plan on placing in some sort of grouping. Maybe in a circle, I don’t know. So excited to see how they work out. If you want to create them for your yard you can read the directions here.

Ghost Through Window

Ghost Through WindowThere are many things that we have tried to do over the years for parties and have only been moderately successful with. Every year I get some crazy idea and then it’s a challenge to come up with a way to do it. My poor husband is often stuck doing the more mechanical type things since he’s better at it than I am. A few years ago I got the idea to make a ghost that looks like it’s going through a window. We finally got it to work with a cut up light weight prop and heavy-duty suction cups. The only problem was the weight. Trying to get something light enough that the suction cups could hold it. Everyone was always impressed with it, but I was never quite satisfied. Well, lo and behold they now make this exact prop called Light Up Ghost Through Window. This one even lights up! There are some mixed reviews of this product on various sites. Honestly though if people knew how difficult this is to make they would keep their big pie-hole shut and be happy it exists. I know I am!
