White craft twine or rope
Step 1: Cut and Glue Your Rope to the Craft Round
Once you’re hot glue has dried, flip your ghost back over to the front If you want to create
a shape like I did as more of an oval,use a black marker to your rope and cut them to length and untwist your rope pieces. If you want to leave your wall hanging as more of a traditional ghost shape flat across the bottom, you can start untwisting your rope.
Step 3: Cut out and adhere the felt eyes to your ghost decoration
I used an extra piece of rope that I had trimmed as my hanger glued to the back of the word round.
After that, you can give your cute ghost rope a home on your front door or on your wall! as a fun welcome to a spooky Halloween party or to welcome your guests as a part of your outdoor DIY Halloween decorations now that you’ve learned the steps How to Make a DIY Ghost from Rope Wall Decor!
You can find many of these supplies at the dollar tree. I’ve seen other tutorials that use foam board or a round ire wreath to create these fun rope ghosts. Find supplies on Amazon.
A wood plywood craft round-size will depend on how big or how small you want your ghost to be, mine is a 12 inch craft round.
I love a fun DIY project that uses ordinary supplies to make something really amazing and cute Halloween decorations. This DIY ghost from rope wall decor is the perfect little bit of decor that can brighten up your wall or front door to welcome your trick or treaters! I love that there are no macrame skills (because there are no knots needed!). This project uses a few simple supplies such as white cotton rope, a wood craft round, black felt and hot glue. I trimmed the bottom of mine a little bit differently from other examples I’ve seen online for a more modern look in an oval shape, but you can make yours as scary or as cute as you like! You can watch the video on this post to take you through the entire project of making your non-macrame ghost, or you can visit the step-by-step instructions below.
Begin by measuring out your first three pieces of rope as to the length you want your ghost bottom to hang. My first pieces were approximately 5 feet long. You want to leave them a little bit on the longer side for trimming later. Only cut the first three pieces because as you move closer into the center of the ghost, the pieces will become shorter, and it will waste rope if you trim them longer. My interior pieces at the end were only 33 inches long.
