Ghostly Welcome

I saw a project similar to this in my BHG 100 days of holidays email and thought it was a really cute idea. 

cutting blade
white and black paint
paint brush

I didn't take step by step pics because I figured it was pretty self explanatory.  Here is the final project:

 First I drew the shape of a ghost onto the cardboard.  Once I was satisfied with the way it looked, I used my blade to cut it out.  Then I drew the hole for the mouth and cut that out.
(Just look at all those leaves that fell yesterday!)

 I painted the cut out white first using two coats of white craft paint, and once it was dry I painted on the eyes with black craft paint.  Here he is before the glitter.  Cute, but he need a little something more.

 I thought it would be cute to write something on him.  So I used a glue pen, spelled out B-O-O and then used orange glitter to give him some sparkle!

Not bad for a free and easy project!  I like that it has a little glitter now!

Here is where I'm linking up today:
