Recycled Halloween Ghost Light

The cutest ghost light ever is easily made with a frosted wine bottle and black vinyl!

I had the perfect wine bottle to recycle for this project... it was frosted! 

Am I the only one who choses their wine by how cool the bottle is?

As you read through this post please pay attention to the bold blue links for more Homeroad information and the products I used for this project.

If you do not happen to have a frosted wine bottle you can use Rustoleum Frosted Glass Spray to frost clear bottles.

I cut 2 ovals for the eyes and a mouth by hand from a scrap of black vinyl.

I peeled the back and attached the pieces to the bottle. 

No vinyl cutter needed! 

No vinyl around the house? 

Use a paint stick or Sharpie marker!

Next I tied a black ribbon bow around the neck of the bottle.

Variations of this project with different colored bows and faces can be fun!

Inside, I used my favorite corked bottle lights like I used in these decorative bottles.

How cute (and easy) is this ghost?

It looks so boo-tiful when it starts to get really dark!

Here is an easy DIY ghost made with a large topiary frame you may want to try this year! 

You can also use the same large topiary frame to make this Halloween project. 

Or the candle topper ghost I made from a repurposed light fixture

And lastly, if you have a sheet and a paper lantern you're all set to create this fun flying ghost!

The bottle was free, the ribbon was recycled from a blanket I bought and the cork lights are so inexpensive you could make several!

Who says decorations need to be costly?
