Tutorial for garbage bag ghosts:
Start by trimming the blue drawstring off the bottom of each bag.
On one bag, cut an additional 4, 1 inch strips from the bottom of the bag. They don’t have to be perfect. You will not be able to tell on the end product.
Take one of the remaining two bags and place a balloon inside of the bag. Center it in the bottom of the bag and tighten the bag around the base of the balloon. Tie it in place with one of the strips of plastic.
Cut vertical strips in the bottom part of the garbage bag ghost to give it a whimsical effect.
Using your scissors, poke a hole in and out of the top of the garbage bag ghost, just above the balloon. Be careful not to puncture the balloon. With another strip of plastic, twist one end of it and feed it through the holes at the top of the garbage bag ghost. Tie a knot in the two ends of plastic and trim the ends. Carefully feed the plastic through the hole into the knot is hidden inside the top of the garbage bag ghost.
Lastly, draw a face on your ghost using the permanent marker.
Repeat using the remaining garbage bag, balloon, and plastic strips.
Hang your garbage bag ghosts up outside to greet trick or treaters on Halloween.
