The cutest ghost light ever! 

Recycled Wine bottle ghost

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?

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

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.

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