Mustache Ghost Garland

Okay, so maybe I had a little too much fun making my Silly ‘Stache Jars, but I just couldn’t resist adding mustaches to these glittery ghosts.

Then, in my crafty mind, the next logical step was to glue the ghosts to baker’s twine to make a not-so-spooky garland. Pair the ghost garland with the mustache jars to make a fun combo decoration for Halloween.

Supplies Needed to Make the Mustache Ghost Garland:

  • Glitter Craft Foam Ghosts
  • Black Felt
  • Google Eyes
  • Baker’s Twine
  • Hot Glue Sticks

Tools Needed:

  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun

Garland Ghost Supplies

Let me start out by saying if you don’t want to spend the extra money on the pre-cut glitter ghost shapes, or if you can’t find them, you can always cut your own ghosts out of craft foam.

Decide how many ghost you want on your garland. I had 6 and it ended up being about 3 feet long. Grab the black felt and cut out the tiny mustaches. first, cut a rectangle of felt about 2″ to 3″ wide and about an inch tall. Fold the piece in half and cut a half mustache shape on the fold, similar to how you cut a half a heart shape on a folded piece of paper. Unfold the mustache and trim as needed.

Your mustaches will all be a little different, which is great! You want all of your ghosts to have their own personality.

Lay out your ghosts, glitter side up, and use the hot glue gun to attach mustaches to the ghost’s face.

Now, glue two google eyes on each ghost, just above the mustache.

Now flip your ghosts over so the back faces up. Lay them next to each other on your work surface. Space them about 4-inches apart. Cut a piece of baker’s twine (I used black and white) that is long enough to lay across the top of all of your ghosts plus about 2 extra feet.  Lay the twine over the back of the ghosts heads.

Use the hot glue gun to attach the baker’s twine to the back of the ghost’s heads. Be generous with the glue so it will hold for a long time!

Let the glue cool down and then you can hang up your ghost garland. Don’t you think they are too adorable? Now, what can I put a mustache on next…
