Have you been seeing the ghost trend and the ghosts made using tomato cages. I was inspired to make a smaller version, a No Sew Quick and Cute Plush Ghost using the Kunin Felt Brand Plush Felt. You can make this ghost in less than an hour!
Skill Level: Beginner
Time: 1 Hour or Less
You will need:
1 yard of Kunin Felt Brand White Plush Felt (available at Hobby Lobby.)
2 safety eyes, 12mm (optional, you can use felt or wiggly eyes, buttons)
Scrap of Kunin Felt Classic Pink
4″ Styrofoam Brand Foam Ball
1 yard Buffalo Plaid Ribbon
2″ Black Embroidery Floss
12″ wood dowel
4″ round or square block of wood
Adhesives Beacon Fabri-tac, hot glue both work well
1″ Circle Template
Scissors, pencil, measuring tape
Drill hole into base and insert dowel. Another option for a base is to recycle a plastic bottle. Just fill with pellets or sand halfway.
Insert center of foam ball down on to dowel.
Fold push felt into quarters. Round off two layers of outside corners. Repeat for the two under layers. (This makes a large circle.)
Place circle plush side down. Center stand as shown.
Fold plush over top of stand. It will stick to foam ball.
Tie ribbon loosely around ball.
Refer to photo for eye placement. I used a safety eye but you can use other options like felt ovals or buttons. For safety eyes I made a small hole with scissors through plush and ball.
Insert eyes. You can glue in place but they will stay on their own without adhesive. For mouth shape piece of floss into a smile. Use a tiny line of glue with toothpick to put on face.
Cut two 1″ circles from pink felt and glue under eyes.
Crease folds slightly to hold a pumpkin. Tada! Accessorize your No Sew Quick and Cute Plush Ghost! (Pumpkin Hat is the cuff of a sock.)
Hope we have inspired you to make a ghost or two or three with our No Sew Quick and Cute Plush Ghost!
