Ghost Ribbon Sculptures - The Ribbon Retreat BlogHey everyone, Brynde again from The Ribbon Retreat. Today I will be showing you how to make adorable little
Ghost Ribbon Sculptures!

The supplies I used are listed below. The Ribbon Retreat carries most everything needed to make these fun little Ghosts!

Ribbon:
3/8” White Grosgrain
1/4” Grosgrain (for the bow)
3/8” Grosgrain (to line the hair clip, I used black)

Other Supplies:
Alligator Clip
Hi-Temp Hot Glue Gun
Scissors
E6000 (optional)
6 mm Gems
5 mm Googly Eyes
Lighter

Ghost Ribbon Sculptures - The Ribbon Retreat BlogOk, let’s get started! First, cut 4 strips of 3/8” White Grosgrain at 2” long. Then, stack them together and cut one of the ends at an angle.
