We had a bit of an assembly line for this. Two year old crumpled tissue, 4 year old covered and mom tied them off.


Add a ghostly face with black marker.

Creating the Wreath

Cut a wreath frame out of cardboard or use a vine or styrofoam wreath from a craft store.
Paint black if you wish.



Ghosts


Cover the wreath frame with glue and start sticking on the ghosts.



Ghosts
I tried to encourage an upright position and started by spacing them out, then we filled in between.


Add Halloween ribbon for hanging and any other scary embellishments you wish!

A great option if you are going to be out Halloween night is to lollipops to create the ghosts and stick into a vine wreath. Trick or treaters can help themselves!
