How to Make Halloween Candy Ghosts
Attention Ghouls and Ghosts: Halloween is creeping up on us like a black cat in a dark alley. Do you have your candy purchased and in your Halloween bucket ready to placate the droves of demanding children, ahem... I mean terrifying creatures in the night? You know how those creatures are always reaching their grubby little hands into your Halloween bucket and trying to get as much candy as they can grab? Or how about when they stand there fingering each piece of candy until they've found just he right one to satisfy their sugar sucking vampire teeth? Does it drive you as bonkers as it drives me? Well, I've got an adorable and creative little solution. Stuff a couple pieces of candy into a piece of white tissue paper and tie it up into a ghost. I added a tag with a Halloween greeting onto each ghost so when they open it up and see the Pop Rocks and Candy Rings they will remember who the cool family on the block is. I've included a PDF of a generic tag that you can download below. BUT, if you leave me your family's name and email address in the comments (or email it to me), I will email you your very own personalized printable tags! How about that! Happy Halloween!
Start by getting all of your supplies ready. I purchased everything you see here from the dollar store (including the candy) for about $30. You will need:
- White tissue paper
- White ribbon
- Stickable Googly Eyes
- Black marker
- Hole punch

1. Fold the tissue paper in half.
2. Take 2-4 pieces of candy and put in the center.
3. Fold the tissue paper around the candy and tie a piece of white ribbon around it.
4. Hole punch and add the tag to the ribbon.
5. Add two googly eyes and use the marker to make a oval mouth.
