Halloween Ghost Lights

I had a giant string of ping-pong ball lights from IKEA that I wasn't using and I thought they'd make a great base for some ghost Halloween lights.  Napkins, floral wire and a black sharpie marker are the total supplies needed. 

If you don't have a spare string of ball lights around you can poke a hole in actual ping pong balls and attach them to a spare string of white Christmas lights.

My napkins happened to have little flowers along one side which are definitely not suitable for ghosts so I cut that off then refolded them into squares at their smaller size.  If you want to make your life easier just get some plain napkins. 

Fold the napkins over into a triangle a few at a time and then cut in a random pattern to create a ruffled edge so your ghosts are fluttery.

Unfold your napkin one at a time and in the middle draw a cute little ghost face. 

Position your napkin around the light and cut a length of wire to wrap around under the light and twist to secure. 

Repeat until you have a full string of lights.  

We hung ours up around the outside of the window with a series of tacks in the window frame.
