I would bet money on the fact that even my 
least crafty readers could pull this adorable Halloween craft off.
I originally saw the idea for tomato cage ghosts on Pinterest, 
but it lead to a dead end link so I decided to wing it.

Seriously, these tomato cage ghosts are 
the easiest thing ever, yet also super adorable.
Two of my favorite things, easy and cute.
Oh, they're also cheap to make.
I love that aspect too.

 All you need are the following items to make two ghosts:
2 tomato cages
1 twin white sheet
2 strands of white lights
scrap black felt for the eyes
4 pins
2 balls of yarn or scrap fabric

I didn't want my ghosts to have pointy heads so I knew I needed something to top them off with to give them a rounded head.  I have a ton of yarn around so that's what I used, but you could use a kitchen towel, a tshirt or scrap fabric.  All I did was place it on top of the upside down tomato cage.

Next, wrap a strand of lights around each cage.

I cut a twin sheet a friend had given me in half. 
This gave me the perfect amount of fabric for each ghost.

I used scrap black felt to cut eyes out and pinned 
them on with straight pins from underneath.

That's it.
No kidding.
That's all it took.
Well, you do have to put them outside and plug them in.
Aren't they cute?!
One thing I love about these ghosts is that they look just as cute during the day with the strands of light shut off as they do when they're on and it's dark outside. 
Really, anyone can pull off these easy tomato cage ghosts.

I also got in the Halloween spirit with my fingernails this weekend.
Simply paint your nails black, add two dots of white on 
each nail followed by two smaller dots of black.

What's your favorite way to decorate for Halloween?
