Ghost Pop Tutorial

We are having a Halloween party this weekend and I decided I wanted to make some cute treats while we watch scary movies!

Follow the directions below to make your own Ghost Pop!

1. Supplies:
Ribbon (I used black and pink)
Linen (any white fabric will do, or even tissue or napkins)
Black and Pink Craft Marker

2. Cut your fabric into 7X7 inch squares, they can be smaller or bigger depending on how much of a "train" you want your ghost to have. Also don't worry about precise lines of fraying, it just adds to the spook effect!

3. Take two kiddie corners and gather at center

4. Gather the other two corners

5. Tie off with your ribbon for a bow tie effect

6. Add two eyes and a mouth with black marker and rosy cheeks with your pink marker

Ta da! Cute Ghost!

I also have a freebie for you! Feel free to use this cute ghostiefor any Halloween projects!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Monday!
Had a great weekend with the husband! Did a lot of this:

Hit up 7-11 for their Domo cups and straws and watched the first season of Domo-Kun!

Went on a double date to see this amazing movie and cried my eyes out. Not only sad tears but tears for the incredibly beautiful images I was watching and emotions I was experiencing! Cheesy, I know, but oh so great!

Also watched this movie, and I have to say I am severely disappointed. I was more scared when I got home, at just the thought of being possesed, then by this movie. I kept squeezing my husband's hand braving myself for the huge fright that never came. It was ok, but definitely NOT the "Most terrifying movie of the year." It was more hype than anything. However, in the spirit of full disclosure, I closed my eyes for the last 30 seconds of the movie ; )

We also did a 2 hour drive around Ogden Canyon, looks like this right now:

And lastly, went to the parents house for dinner Sunday night. Afterwards Jake and I, snuck into the little sis' room, and left her a ransom note : )

This week will be all about cleaning, homework, and Halloween activities! Yay!
