Ghostly Greetings!

Who will be welcoming your guests and goblins next week?
Why not treat them to a Ghooooostly Greeeeeeeting this Halloween?!
I ran across these cute tomato cage covers at a Fall Festival last year and KNEW I was going to need (at least) one of my very own!  Luckily, my mad Internet skills led me straight to an awesome source at Desert Saints Magazine that has complete instructions, so head on over if you're interested in whipping one of these up for yourself!
The instructions were very easy to follow and the whole project cost me less than $10 to BOO-t!
I used a blanket stitch to apply the mouth and eyes, but you can't really appreciate it like I thought you might, so I wouldn't bother!  You could certainly glue this entire project as well, but I think sewing will end up being more durable over the long run.
Here he is lit up at night - I chose to use a small spotlight, but I've seen other sites that have used white Christmas lights underneath, so whatever you have handy!
This project also whipped up quickly - under an hour, so you've still got plenty of time to knock one or BOO! of these out before the trick-or-treaters arrive!
Happy Halloween Y'all!
