Looking for cute decor to haunt your house this season? Then these super fun Ghost Silhouettes will be star of the show! All you need is some sheet foam and paint to create these cool ghouls.

I have a big window on the front of my house, so I made these silhouettes pretty large to fit it. I just love them they are my new favorite scary home decor!!

You can customize your sizes and even use these cuties inside you home for your next Halloween Party.

cut-ghosts-out-of-sheet-foam

Cut each piece out using a cutter or sharp knife. Gently sand the edges of foam to smooth out rough edges.

Using a low-temp glue gun, glue the larger ghosts’ head and shoulders to the mid-body.

paint-foam-with-latex-paint

Paint each piece of foam, front and sides with latex paint. Paint a ghost bottom to one of the sheets of plain foam. Let the paint dry overnight or until completely dry.

hand-paint-eyes-on-ghost

Paint a white face on each silhouette.  Glue the large ghost to the painted bottom section.  Glue the shoulder and extra base to the small ghost.  Paint grey shadows on the lower white portion of large ghost and side portion of small ghost. This will hide the white foam when placing them in a window.

Use the leftover foam to create a base for each ghost.  Add an extra thin piece of foam to the back of the ghost as a brace for added stability.

Tip: Using a base allows them to be more stable when standing them in a windowsill. You can omit this step if they are sturdy enough for your decor.
