  • How to make a Halloween decoration. Ghost Halloween Decoration - Step 1
    Step 1

    All you need to do is make cuts in the sweater where you want the eyes and nose to be and make big runs in the sweater. In this case I sewed up the sleeve openings, cut the pockets and buttons off as well.

    I gathered up the neckline with the oh so fancy safety pin and linked it to a bent metal hanger. I unlike Joan Crawford am a big fan of the wire hanger!

    Then simply wrapped the edges of the sweater over the soft new curves of the hanger. If you live in a particularly windy area you may want to glue or stitch in place but as yet I haven't had the need. Oh and I did tie the outside bottom corners out to the foliage to make the bottom splay out a bit, but is isn't necessary.
