Halloween Ghost Witch

Halloween Ghost Witch

This Halloween decoration is quick to make and lots of fun. The kids will love the combination of a ghost and witch.

What you need

One large tomato cage
One large styrofoam ball
One rope light your choice of color I used green for an eerie feel
One twin size flat white sheet
One spool of ribbon your color of choice
One child size witch hat


The Christmas rope lights come with zip strips. Take one and gather at the top of the tomato cage and use a zip strip to secure it.

Wind rope lights around the tomato cage securing them with the zip strips.

Firmly press the styrofoam ball onto top of the tomato cage.

Cover with sheet.

Gather sheet just below Styrofoam ball and tie ribbon around it letting ribbon ends flow down in front of the sheet.

Take a black Sharpie pen and draw eyes and mouth.

Add witches hat and voila! You have a ghost witch.

  7. This is my third time trying to relay this message to you. I have all the supplies to make this but am concerned about the green lights. It said on the instructions not to cover them for fear of it over heating and causing a fire. Have you had any trouble with heat build up under the sheet. This is so adorable. Thank you.

    My daughter and I did this last night as a last minute project. We ended up using a beach ball instead of styrofoam. He looked so cute on the front porch. I’m sure we will do this every year now. Thanks so much.

  11. What a wonderful idea! Every year we put up a yard display with fun and silly ghosties as our theme. I have run our of ideas that aren’t the same old thing.. This is perfect for that display.
    Thank you so much! The neighborhood kids will love it.

What do you think of this project? Let us know!
