Crown of thorns gourds have a natural Halloween ghost shape about them. I grow my own on the farm, but if you’re not a gardener, you can usually find them at any local farm market this time of year. All that’s required to turn them from a gourd in a ghost is a little white and black paint. The finished Halloween ghosts can be displayed on a table or shelf, or you can screw in an eye hook as I did here, and hang them from the ceiling. Then turn out the normal lights and flip on a black light for a spooky, glowing effect from the white paint on the Halloween ghosts. By Amber Reifsteck ~ The Woodland ElfEnjoy this post?
