31 Days of Halloween - Day 4

Are you ready for a fun and practical craft that you can actually use, instead of something that will just take space and will probably get throw away!

Get ready for the Foot Ghost Fridge Magnet Clip!

This one did not cost me anything because I already had everything, but if you bought everything it will run you just about $5.50 to make a bunch of ghosts, with lots of left over supplies!!

You will need:

White, orange, and brown felt - (Hobby Lobby $0.25 a peice - I already had some)
Googly Eyes - (Dollar Store - Again I had some)
Marker, Crayon, Pen, Colored Pencil, whatever you have that you can write with
Clothes pin (Dollar Store - you can get a package at the Dollar Store)
Hot Glue Gun - or Elmers Glue
Magnet - (Dollar Store - Already had some)

If you don't have everything above, look around your house and improvise. I thought I had orange felt for the pumpkin and I could not find it anywhere, so I used an orange and white gingham scrapbook paper instead!

1. Trace the child’s foot onto the felt, and cut it out. Only trace the tips of the toes, do not draw lines defining the individual toe (this will be the body of the ghost).

2. Cut out a pumpkin and stem out of the felt and glue them together, you can write anything creative on pumpkin, like "BOO" or "Thing 1 - 2012" or "Happy Halloween - Thing 2". Okay, so those are not creative, but you get the idea.
3. Glue on 2 googly eyes on the heel of the foot.

4. Glue the pumpkin to the front ghosts, below the face, kinda in the stomach region, like the ghost is holding the cute pumpkin.

5. Glue the magnet to the back of the clothespin and then the Clothespin to the back of the ghost. 

Throw it up on the refrigerator, and there you have, it a sweet memory of your little ones foot, in 2012, in a cute, creative, usable way!

 Stay tuned for tomorrow!!! We are going to make Ghostly Grub!!!

You can do it if AshHas!!
