Are you looking for a boo-tiful craft to do this Halloween season? Then give these boo-tiful badminton birdie ghosts a try. With just a few birdies and a few supplies, you can make you own spooky little ghosts in just minutes. Kids will love crafting these, and you will love that they just cost pennies to make. Take a look below to see how to get started!
Here is what you will need:
Assorted plastic badminton birdies (We found a package for less than $2 at Walmart)
White spray paint
Craft glue or hot glue, glue gun
You can find all of these items at your local craft or retail store. Check around your home too, as chances are these are items you may already have in your stash!
1. Begin by placing the birdies on old newspaper. Apply 2-3 coats of white spray paint, allowing the coats of paint to dry in between applications.
2. Once the birdies are dry, apply some craft glue to the back of the googly eyes. Press them to the top of the birdie to create the eyes of the ghosts.
3. Now, take the black marker and make a mouth directly on the birdie. You can make a simple polka dot for this task.
Your badminton birdie ghosts are now ready to be displayed. You can string them onto ribbon and display them as you would a garland, or just display them in a gathering like we did. They look so cute, and are a great way to get into the Halloween spirit without spending a lot of cash.
Gather your birdies and give these boo-tiful ghosts a try. This is an easy and inexpensive Halloween craft your whole family is sure to have fun with.
