Just because it’s Halloween doesn’t mean that everything associated with it has to be scary, so why not decorate the house with some adorable ghost wreaths?

These ghost wreaths are made with fairly simple items, all of which are easily found at home so there’s no need to run to the store for this. Using only cotton balls, tissues, floss, tape, cardboard and a marker, you can easily make this ghoulish wreath with your family. If you've accidentally made too many, you can hang the remaining ghosts around the house with the floss.

Though ghosts are seen as somewhat of a scary spirit, ghosts—like the ones made of tissues—are actually a good omen in Japan. Also known as teru teru bozu, these ‘ghosts’ are said to bring good weather and prevent rain, a huge downer for trick-or-treating. Stats for Spooky Haunted Hanging Decor Trending: Older & Chilly
