After making my ghost last year and having trouble keeping it lit (due to lack of air), I've been on the hunt at Goodwill for the perfect ghost shape. Earlier in September, I started this project at the same time I made my jack-o-lanterns (funny how I'm seeing these every where now). Great minds think alike I guess?
I started with this sconce I found for a $1 at Goodwill (our Goodwill's in the DFW area have 1/2 price sales the 3rd Wednesday of every month). The sconce is perfect as it already has an opening at the top to circulate the air (my dad, the glass man, cut holes in the top of my ghost last year). But not everyone has access to someone who can cut holes in glass.
Then I just used my Basic George Cricut cartridge to cut some ovals. I cut a variety of sizes to play around with (out of vinyl).
I used painters tape to fill in the opening at the top so spray paint wouldn't find it's way inside.
I used white spray paint to paint the glass. Peeled off the vinyl and I have the perfect ghost.
