I made the pop can ghosts

Made a daddy, momma and baby ghost. Used the pop cans for the body for momma and daddy. I used an empty pudding cup turned upside down for baby's body and a 1 1/2" styrofoam ball for head. I think I used 3" balls for the parent's heads. The daddy looks the best. I think I made the momma's mouth too large, and too round. Looks like she's singing! The baby...LOL, LOL, her eyes are SO big it looks like SHE'S seen a ghost!! Sorry, no pictures.

that was funny oddie LOL. Everytime I look at them, that's what I think and it makes me laugh. I used white fabric that was only $1.00 a yard instead of cheese cloth. I sewed 1/2" white lace around the bottoms of the momma's and baby's "dresses"..lol. I'm not good at all when it come to doing faces. Instead of painting the eyes on, I tried to find something oval I could use. I remembered my low-temp glue gun which uses large oval glue sticks. I took one and dabbed it in some black paint and pressed it onto the faces for the eyes. After giving the momma and baby a round mouth, I decided to use the glue stick method on the daddy for his mouth. They are very cute!!

luvstocraft, I'm working on getting that digital camera..lol. When I do, I'll probably need someone to help me figure out how to get the pictures from the camera onto here. I think you have to have some kind of disk or something that plugs into your computer, (I think).

I like making the can ornaments, too. Not only are you making a cute craft, but recycling as well. Can't wait to see your ghosts!
