You need to take a ball, wrap it with tissue paper and secure it with a rubber band. Once that’s done make sure the ends are loose and adjust them. Stick googly eyes on it or draw with a marker. You could also use a long thread to put all the ghosts together and make a garland out of it! We stuck it on our wall and made it as a backdrop for our Halloween Activity Week.
