Make Halloween Ghosts with the Globe Punch

Hello and welcome Trick or Treat fans!

It’s Chantalle here and I’m going to show you a super easy, spookalicious décor idea you can use for Halloween, which is right around the corner!

The humble ghost is a quintessential hallmark at this time of year. These little fellows are created in just three easy steps! Make them in abundance and hang inside the home or suspend outdoors to float in the breeze.

The heads of the ghosts were created using my DIY Party Globe Punch. This clever tool allows you to create custom covers to adorn LED light strands! I’ve used the tool quite simply this time, tying off one end to create the globe shape and threading it through some muslin fabric.

To start, I trimmed some sheets of Core’dinations Smooth Premium Cardstock down to 4 (w) x 7.5 (l) inches. Lining the left short edge of the paper up with the alignment guide mark, I punched. One then slides the paper slightly to the left, to meet the next alignment guide. Punch again.

Now one continues to punch left to right, matching the punched shape with the shape embossed into the tool. This is so you know you are aligning the next punch correctly. Continue until you have punched the length of the paper.

Now, flip the paper and do the same for the opposite side.

The Globe Punch (as with all WRMK tools) comes with full instructions. Loop the top little hook shapes together to close the globe at both sides. I strung some twine around one closed side and used a marker to draw some faces on to the cardstock.

Finally, I threaded the twine through some muslin, which I cut into a very rough square shape. You can, of course, make the squares as large as you’d like to make the ghosts really floaty!

They look cute huddled together and would even make a great mobile!
