These Halloween DIY Projects show you how to make your own Halloween ghosts using packing tape
You can use these Halloween ghosts as light up yard displays or set them out in the dark of night to resemble a transparent body walking across your front yard.
These ghosts are also perfect for hanging inside the house as they are lightweight and can be strung up with minimal effort. Try using fans or ceiling fans to make them move around the ceiling.
My favorite has to be the hand and gun coming out of the TV, of course, I would have to create a poltergeist coming out of the TV to scare everyone.
Once you have practiced making or casting these ghosts yourself you can try some more tricky positions for your DIY prop making. There are lots of different examples online of these ghosts to give you inspiration.
You can use shrink wrap, cling wrap or trash bags as the base which is much more cost-effective than using pure tape. You do need patience for this tutorial as well as a willing victim, I mean model. It takes around 3-4 rolls of tape to make one mannequin/ghost. Make sure your model goes to the toilet first (lesson learned the hard way).
