Guest Post: Kid Craft! Ghost Luminaries for Halloween

I am so happy to have Fotini as a guest blogger from  Glamorous, Affordable Life! I hope you all enjoy reading her writing as much as I do!

Hi! My name is Fotini and I blog over at Glamorous, Affordable Life! I’m thrilled to be guest posting today, thank you Michelle ;)

Today I’m going to be sharing a fun, easy craft project to do with the kids! Ghost luminaries…
Here’s what you’re going to need:
  • ·         Brown paper bags
  • ·         White craft or body paint, paintbrush
  • ·         Plastic plate (to put the paint on)
  • ·         Googly eyes
  • ·         Craft glue
  • ·         Decorative scissors (optional)
  • ·         Flameless candles

Grab your paper bag, paint, paintbrush and plastic plate.  Get your little ones bare tootsies out and begin to paint. My son is soo ticklish, he could barely stay still! Once the entire foot (toes included!) are covered in paint, place it firmly onto the bag (the heel should be towards the opening of the bag).

Repeat for your desired number of luminaries. I did two for each of my kids. Let your paint dry. I trimmed the top of my bags with decorative craft scissors, just for looks! Next, glue on your googly eyes. 

I was able to pick up two-packs of flameless candles at the dollar store, $1 per pack. Add your flameless candles to your bags and volia, ghost luminaries!

How cute would these look lined up your driveway for trick-or-treat night?!  I added mine to our hallway in front of the kids’ rooms. They look so cute lit up and the kids love them!
