Ghost Family Halloween Wreath

I have thought for years, that it would be so fun to create a family out of ghosts!!! When I saw the new peg shapes at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, I knew this was the year!!!
This was another one I mostly made in the minivan during family vacation, so I don't have a ton of process pictures. It was very straight forward. You wrap your ribbon around a foam wreath base (Hobby Lobby).  I cut and pinned, because I was being cheap, but ended up gluing anyway.
Cut a divet in your wreath with a knife, and slide a piece of wood in (Hobby Lobby). This is not highly scientific. I just shoved it until it fit.
Paint your peg ghosts however you like.I did white tops and black bottoms. I painted the details on with a toothpick.
Last minute, I decided to add some tulle circles over the top of each ghost. I thought it was a little fun and unexpected. I pinned them in the back, but didn't glue them, incase I wanted to take them off. They are still on. I think I like it that way best.
I also got a tree in the unfinished wood section of Hobby Lobby, and painted it grey. I hot glued everything in place.
I cut a moon out of foam, and hung it by a strip of tulle, and a pin. It really looks better than these pics. I don't know why I couldn't get a good one!
My baby LOVED it when he saw it, and named off each member in our family!
I do think it's pretty cute myself. It's a little more, "cutesie," than I have been in the mood for lately, but it's fun anyway!

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a Happy and Creative Day!
