Ghost Garland: A kid friendly craft

My kids and I made this ghost garland to go in our branch on the wall.  It was simple, quick, and fun to make. 

We started out with wide, wavy popsicle sticks that I picked up at the craft store long ago for another project.  The other project never panned out, but this craft went well. 

I cut the sticks at different lengths and let the kids paint them white with watered down acrylic paint.  Once dry, I dotted on eyes and a mouth and hot glued the ghosts onto a ribbon.  Done!  It was that easy. 

It would be fun to give each ghost his or her own look...some glasses, a tie, or maybe a hair bow.
