Easy Outdoor Light up Halloween Ghost.


I added this cute halloween ghost to my outdoor halloween decor. It lights up and the eyes glow.
First I grabbed my tomato cage that, a glass light cover,and some lights. I had a string of solar lights that I wrapped up under the glass. Then the green cord lights are white flashing lights that I tied around the tomato cage.
You can use a sheet to cover but I had some material that had little ghost on it, and thought that would work perfect. Then I found these eyes that glow in the dark at the dollar store. They peel and stick on. Ta da
These googly eyes are round, but are the same kind that I used on my ghost. I bought two sets, because I didn't know which ones would look best.
I will add a picture of him when he is all lite up, but my battery died in my camera, so will have to get one tomorrow.

    how does solar light get light during the day with a cover over it?

      Solar lights have a small solar panel that gets put onto a stake which gets pushed into the ground. It houses generally 2 rechargeable batteries. During the day the panel charges the batteries while in the sun its attached by wires to the strand of lights and at night the lights light up. Same for most solar Christmas lights or other solar light up things. You'll see a small black square,,that's the solar panel.

    How do you get the roundness for the ghost's head

      She used a glass light cover as shown in the second picture. You could also use a ball that would fit into the tomato cage, but it wouldn't like up like this one.
