Halloween is such a fun time to make arts and crafts galore, from carving pumpkins to decorating haunted houses. But a packing tape ghost? It takes Halloween crafting to a whole new spooktacular level!
This creepy, but fun, idea for Halloween decorations was shared by a mom, Stacy Ball Mecham, on Facebook. The process is actually pretty simple, but the result is downright fantastical.
The only materials you’ll need: saran wrap and packing tape. Also, a mannequin head can help too (unless you’re going for a headless packing tape ghost).
Also helpful: a model to act like a mannequin. In the case of Stacy Ball Mecham, her daughter volunteered to help. I can totally see my kids loving this too — especially if they knew what I was turning them into!
As for the process, simply wrap saran wrap around your model. Then tape it up.
Mecham then shared, of her process: “After it was firm enough, I carefully cut a seam. Wiggled the ghost piece off and taped the seam shut. Pieced it all together with tape and added more tape where it needed more strength.”
Once it’s all taped together, voila, you’ll have a spooky packing tape ghost. And it seriously spooky. I would totally flip if I walked around a corner and found a “ghost” like this! Mecham isn’t the only one who has made this fantastical Halloween decoration, and all the versions I have seen online have looked super cool — but also super spooky.
What do you think: too creepy or totally fun for Halloween?
