I began with an old book that was destined for either the thrift store. I painted the book orange and then added some wood crackle around the edges of the book.
After the crackle dried, I added some antique white paint (oops, I have Ivory White in the picture). Then I used the letters to put the title on the book, added a ghost and Jack-o-Lantern sticker, and finished it with some footprints.
Then of course, I placed the book next to the pumpkin patch. However, that pumpkin patch still doesn't look haunted. Let's add a few ghosts.
To make the ghost, I began by cutting out a template out of white material.
Then I stitched the three layer together without hemming the edges. Pulled on the edges of the batting to give it a ghostly look and painted on a face.
I made two and added them to my patch.
One more thing-- a great place for the ghost tree.
Okay, I think I'm done with ghosts and pumpkins. For now.....
