These ghosts really are a super easy DIY project for Halloween. When we originally made them, we bought the fabric but didn’t want to spend any additional money (because we had just bought a house and were feeling cheap!) so we used supplies we found around the house to make it work.

You can really play around with the fabric, we like layering 2 different types to give the ghosts more depth so we went with a solid white and a gray sheer, but if you have fabric on hand or see something on sale, it’ll probably work.

These could be outdoor or indoor decor, we like hanging them from our trees because they aren’t too scary for little kids but they also don’t feel cheesy.
