Hey 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!
Ok, 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.
Heat seal the angled ends with a lighter.
Start overlapping the ribbons and glue them to each other. I put a little dab of glue on the right side of the ribbon, and added another piece on top of it.
Once the glue has dried and the ribbon is secure, trim to make a rounded top.
Heat seal with your lighter.
Line your desired Alligator Clip. Add a little glue to the back of the rounded part of the Ghost “head”.
Glue it down to your lined clip.
Now we’re going to make the adorable little bow!
1. Take your ribbon from the left, start to make a loop, and then angle the tail down. Once your start to angle the tail, your loop will really start to take shape. Glue in place.
2. Do the same to the other side and secure with glue.
Trim and heat seal your ends. Then add a little bit of bling with a 6mm Gem!
Put a little dab of glue on the back of the bow and attach to your clip. I off set mine to the left just a bit.
Now add some personality by attaching googly eyes. I recommend using E6000 and applying it with a toothpick.
There you have it! An adorable Ghost Sculpture to put in your little one’s hair.
It was so cute; I couldn’t stop at just a purple bow. I had to make one in all my favorite Halloween colors!
Happy Ghost making!
Until next time,
