– fence net ( you can simply use fruit net packaging ,the thicker the better )
– glow in the dark paint
– small painting brush
– PVA glue (optional)
– mason jar ( optional; if you choose to use fruit net, you might want to place your ghost in a jar to make it steady )
– small string or rubber band (optional)
Use fence net to shape ghostly figure.
If you’re using thick net you can simply paint ghost eyes and mouth and place your ghost in the garden.
If you’re using small, thin piece of fruit net: shape your ghost, cut eye holes and mouth hole,tie the top using a small string or rubber band, glue together all the loose ends (if any), paint circles around eye holes and a mouth hole and place ghost in a jar. I’ve painted jar with glow in the dark paint as well.
– mason jars
– glowsticks or glow in the dark paint (or both)
– small painting brush
– glitter (optional)
– halloween confetti (optional)
You can use both technics and add confetti and lots of colourful glitter. I’ve choosed to make it simple.
