- Brown paint
- A tree branch

Let’s Begin These Creepy Cute Ghosts!
Clean and dry a soup can. Paint the soup can brown or black.
For a more primitive look rip the muslin fabric (You will have to cut the cheese-cloth piece).
Place one styrofoam ball in the center of one piece of white fabric.
Wrap the fabric around the ball. With yarn, embroidery floss, or thread tie a piece around the styrofoam ball gathering up the fabric.
With a black marker, make 2 eyes on the ghost.
Cut a piece of styrofoam block to fit in the bottom of the soup can. Hot glue in place.
Hot glue moss on styrofoam.
Hot glue the end of the tree branch and put in the styrofoam.
Thread a needle and go through the top of the head of the ghost to form a handle.
Place ghosts on branches.
Tie raffia or ripped Halloween fabric around can.
Your swinging ghosts in a tree branch Halloween center-piece is finished!
