THESE GHOSTS ARE A LITTLE CLINGY...

so...walking past my window the other day...i noticed it was a bit nakie...well...that got me thinking about something i've been wanting to try...hot glue window clings!...

with halloween coming up...figured it would be pretty cool to try ghosts...and was a right!...i loved how they came out!...best part...they actually stuck!...i'm lovin' how imperfect they are...got that ectoplasm look to 'em!...

and of course...i did up a little boo-torial for ya!...

 
you'll need a clear glass plate, a glue gun, some glue sticks, and what ever spooky shape your wanting to create...i cut these ghosts on my cricut using the happy haunting cart...

 
place the image under the glass plate...

 
start tracing the outline with the glue gun...do a pretty thick line...

 
here's it all outlined!...

 
now fill 'er in!...be pretty generous with the glue...mine's a little glue gun...and i used 3 sticks to fill it up!...

 
time to let it cool!...

 
you'll want to pry the ghost from the plate...it comes off really easily!...now just to draw on the eyes and mouth with a sharpie!...i put my cut out under again just to get the placement right...

 
and you're all done!...just take the finished ghost and slap it on a window!...aren't they just terror-ific?...

****check out my linky party directory on the sidebar to see where i'm linking to this week!...

I wonder if you could stir in white craft paint into the glue before it sets with a toothpick to add color to the glue? If so, you could tint glue orange and do pumpkins or tint it green and do a frankenstein head, etc.! Just curious. -Karen

i do know that they have colored gluesticks...so you can do up tons of different designs...i've also heard some talk of glow in the dark glow sticks...but i'm thinking that's an urban legend!...lol...

Jaryd will get a huge kick out of these if you don't mind me snagging the idea closer to halloween? It's getting harder and harder to entice him to the craftroom the closer he gets to ten. But he'll jump at the chance with this. Thanks for sharing!

Sooo cute!!! We did hot glue "melted snowmen" for our tree a couple of years ago - they are one of my favorite ornaments. Same concept except you put down a small loop of clear thread (or fishing line) at the top of the glue. Then while the glue is still hot you add black beads for eyes and a small orange pipe cleaner triangle for the nose.

I will have to give these ghosts at try. Thanks for sharing!

Ingenious!! I love window clings. They remind me of the felt bible story boards from Sunday School. I think this is a great project for me today.

Oh my goodness this is so cool. I'm guessing you could paint the glue as well. I'm totally trying this out. I need some kind of oosing something or other for a cracked mirror. I'll have to Facebook this idea so I don't forget where I saw it. :-)
