Boo! So starts the month of Halloween and I’m a little excited. Not only to get September over with, which hasn’t been the best of months, but also because of Halloween. It really is my favorite holiday. I’ve always loved it, ever since I was a kid raiding my parents’ closet for a put-together costume, but it’s even more magical now that I have my own kids. To watch their imagination shine as they get to dress up and become someone else for a night, along with all the creativity leading up to it. All, of course, for candy.
There’s also the decorations. Of transforming our home into fun spook and fright. Ghosts and goblins.
Speaking of ghosts, how about these cute Googly-Eyed Ghost Gloves? Not only are they easy to make, but the options for the ghosts themselves are limitless. They’re a simple ghost design which you can use on the gloves, for a fun puppet show or spook-show, but you can also slide them off and hang them with just a bit of string, stand them on a stick or skewer, do whatever you want with them. Just have fun!
5 squares of white fabric – about 4 inches
small white rubber bands
spare black or dark-colored glove
Take your fabric squares, which you can make out of anything. I cut mine from an old apron, and the lines do not have to be straight. In fact, the more rugged the better. Glue a small cotton ball in the middle of the fabric square.
Take your glove and wrap the fabric around a fingertip, with the cotton ball “head” on the tip. Wrap a rubber band under the cotton ball head.
Glue 2 googly eyes on your ghost.
Complete for all fingers. How fun and easy is that? Perfect for kids and a great start to the excitement of October and Halloween!
