I just wanted to share the ghostie I made for my grandkids for Halloween. He is a 3D ghostie. His head is made from a white plastic globe shaped light fixture cover. His body is made from recycled water bottles that I painted, glittered and cut into spirals. I painted a different friendly face on on the front & the back of the head - the kids are too young for scary. The head has a bit of a green cast to it from the glow in the dark spray paint I used on it - it doesn't glow very much though.

Ian is a genius! Fill recycled water bottles with water and screw on a water balloon nozzle! Easier than turning the hose on and off again or running up the water bill
