These Coffee Filter Ghost Suckers are so easy to make and great for Trick-or-Treaters.
There's one street in our town where they block off the street and most of the houses on that street are decorated with fun Halloween decorations. Some of the houses set up little tables instead of having to go up to their door and they make a night out of it by dressing up and making it fun for the kids. It's super busy but you don't have to worry about the kids running out into the road because the street is closed to traffic.
So when I was little I always remember people making these cute little Ghosts Suckers but they were made out of tissues. I have fond memories of people hanging them in a tree in their front yard and getting to see them while out Trick-or-Treating.
Although I didn't have tissues to make these Ghost Suckers, I always have a large amount of coffee filters. Plus coffee filters are a lot stiffer than a tissue so you can fiddle with them and fluff out the bottom of your ghost suckers. I also have a love for Puffy Paints so that is what the face is painted with, you could use a black marker if your not as fond of Puffy Paints as I am.
- large suckers like Tootsie Pops or Blow Pops
- coffee filters
- orange ribbon
- black puffy paint
- Place two coffee filters over the top of the sucker, one at a time for more dimension.
- Cut and tie an 8" or so piece of ribbon and tie it in a single knot around the bottom of the round part of the sucker as shown.
- Use your Puffy Paint to draw on eyes and a mouth onto the head of your ghost suckers and let them dry overnight.
