Let’s begin by gathering our images. I used images from Cricut Design Space. You can find a link to the project HERE. If you have a different cutting machine, you can search for images such as ghost, witch hat, Halloween, trick-it-treat, etc, and choose images that you like.

Once you have your images in your design program, size them to your liking. I sized my ghost to about 10” tall and the witch hat to be about 6” tall. I sized the candy bag to fit in the ghost's "hand."

Let’s begin cutting. For the ghost, I used Sweet Tooth and Sirio Ultra Black. For the witch hat, I used Sirio Ultra Black, MirriSparkle Black, MirriSparkle Silver, Gold, Chartreuse, Lavender, and Amethyst. Lastly, for the pumpkin trick or treat bag, I used Sirio Ultra Black and Orange Fizz. 

Here are all of my cut pieces.

Now let’s assemble these “fa-boo-lous” ghosts! 



Once they are assembled, adhere your clear string (I used jewelry string) using a dab of hot glue to the top of some and use two cut pieces and adhere them to the sides of others.

Now, you can hang them from your ceilings and add them to your trick or treat bags! 

Here is a photo of one glued to my son's trick-or-treat bag.

I attached a few to a broom decoration and hung them in my dining room window. I love how this turned out!
