Glittered Vellum Paper Ghosts

Posted in Art Glitter Design Team, Main, Sharing the Handmade Love at 9:32 am by carrie

After I made 3 garlands a few weeks ago, I decided to add another little touch to the grouping…



Little glittered ghosts!

Here’s what I used:

  1. Frosted vellum paper
  2. Helmar Vellum Adhesive Spray
  3. Art Institute Ultrafine Transparent Glitter – #85 Crystal
  4. Masking tape
  5. Thin white sheer ribbon
  6. Large piece of paper to spray on



First I cut the ghosts out of vellum, punched a hole in the top of each, then I cut eyes and the “Boo” shapes out of masking tape and stuck them on the ghosts. I them lightly taped the ghosts with double stick tape to a large piece of paper.



Next… do this outside! You are going to be using spray adhesive and making a mess. I put a pretty substantial layer of spray glue on the ghosts and poured glitter over that…



Then I poured even more glitter on them all.



After I let the dry for a while, I removed the masking tape carefully to reveal my subtle non-glittered eyes and “boo”s.



I put ribbon through the hole in the top of the ghost and slowly started adding them to my other garlands.



Then I added all of the ghosts…



until it was packed!

These would also be fun as gift tags, hanging in chandeliers or as little ornaments on a tree!
