This Floating Ghost is really inexpensive to make but it looks so impressive! You can make a few of them and have a little family of ghosts hanging out at your Halloween party. You can also put a light underneath of them and put them out on your front steps or lawn at night. It will look like some glowing ghosts are floating in your yard!

Haunted House Silhouettes


These Haunted House Silhouettes are the perfect way to dress up your house this Halloween!
