  • 10″ Square of White Fabric
  • Plastic Clips
  • 1″ White Pompoms
  • White Cord
  • Two Wiggle Eyes — 10mm
  • Tacky Glue
  • Candy Corn
  • Scissors
  1. Tie the center of a 12″ piece of white cord to a backpack clip. Cut a tiny hole — just big enough to fit both ends of your cord — in the middle of a 10″ square piece of white fabric. Feed both ends of the cord through the hole pushing fabric up to the clip.
  2.  Put a dab of glue on your pompom. Put the pompom up inside the fabric, lining up the dab of glue with the cord knot.
  3.  Run a bead of glue down each side of the pompom, pressing the cord along the glue.
  4.  Tie the cord together at the bottom of the pompom. Let dry. Trim.
  5.  Cut another 12″ piece of cord. Tie it around the fabric, just under the pompom to make the ghost’s head.
  6.  Glue on eyes and decorate with candy corn.
