As a Grandma, I love spending time with my grandsons and one of many things I enjoy doing with them is fun crafty projects. When Brandy @ The Moody Fashionista created little ghost friends by using leaves, I knew this would be a fun craft project to do with them. I took it one step further and we created a friendly ghost tree using leaves.
The making of our little friendly ghost tree started with a hunt in the woods to find the perfect tree branch. It was a beautiful fall day to be in the woods.
The boys were prepared, they took their toy Black ' n Decker chain saw and their John Deer weed whacker just in case we should need it.
We finally found our tree branch! The boys loved exploring the woods. We found deer tracks and lots of acorns.
With their painting shirts on, the boys painted all the leaves white while
Grandma spray painted the tree branch and the string of lights black.
We hot glued the wiggly eyes on the leaves. We then assembled our little friendly ghost tree by adding the string of lights, attaching our little ghost friends with tree hooks, added some orange tie bows and used fishing line as garland.
Our Little Friendly Ghost Tree all lit up.
They both were so excited and loved working on this little craft project with Grandma.
It was such a fun crafty project to do on a cool fall day. I love being a Grandma!
