Miniature Ghosts for your Miniature haunts

Post by DemonSlayerMau » Wed Aug 04, 2010 1:41 pm

Very easy to do! All you need is a tissue, a black pen, some tape, and a tiny crumbled up piece of paper, and something to stick between the tissue like a piece of cardboard.
What I did was draw a little ghostly face on the tissue, I stuck something between the tissue like a small piece of cardboard (kind of like the ones where you get the 50 cent stickers out of the machine from) so that way the pen doesn't bleed through the tissue. Then I stuck a crumbled up receipt (receipts work great for this if you like to recycle instead of just tossing it out or trying to find small pieces of paper) inside the tissue to round out the head. Then I put tape around it, taped up the arms, and tore just a tiny bit at the edges. It was very simple to do, I looked at some crafts online and then I took an idea and ran with it, but kind of implemented things I found around the house to make it; except I bought the tape, but I bought that for another project.
Very cheap, very inexpensive. And here's what the result was:

Just the right size for a miniature haunted house!
This probably seems crazy, crazy, a graveyard theory,
A ghost tried to approach me and got leery.
Ask him a question and he vanished in a second...

Wicked cute idea.

Also, nice wallpaper.

I did something like that but used Kleenex (new, Mac) and used one for the stuffing, and tied string around their necks and hung them from a plant at work.

Ciuin, I thought the same thing!! I love ducks.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

I probably would've used string if I could've found some.
But the brand of tissues I used were puffs. XP I imagine you could use any kind of tissue. Heck, you could probably even use toilet paper. :p
