Day 7 of Halloween Projects: Ghost Refrigerator and Jack-O-Lantern House

For Day 7, I have my project to share with you and also as a bonus I have a unique decoration idea from my sister's house to show as well.

For today's project, I am going to show you a quick and easy way to make your refrigerator into a ghost.  We make our fridge a snowman at Christmas time every year, so  me and my mom were talking about things you could do for Halloween and she came up with the idea of making it a ghost.  I thought it was a great idea and decided that our fridges would have to be ghosts this year.
All you need is two large sheets of black foam and circle magnets.  You then draw out your pattern onto the foam however you want it to look and cut it out.  Once it was cut, I used the circle magnets that have a sticky side and attached them to the back.  I used two magnets per shape for 6 total since the shapes were a good size.  Then, I simply placed the pieces on the fridge.

It is as simple as that and now you can have your very own spooky refrigerator.


In addition to my project today, since it is a home decorating item, I wanted to share a second home decorating idea with you.  My sister Melissa made her house a Jack-O-Lantern this year.  She used PVC Pipe and Lights along with paint and misc. items to make this.  She made triangle shapes for the windows and then made a large piece for the mouth.  I thought it turned out pretty cool and thought that you all may like to see it.


Update 10/11: I am linking this up to the following two link parties:  MMM which you can find here http://craftingreallyawesomefreethings.blogspot.com/ and Craft-O-Maniac which you can find here http://craftomaniac.blogspot.com/

The fridge is a cute idea however my fridge is black and FULL of pictures of my kids, my pets and all my nieces and nephews that I have ever gotten pics from lol... Any ideas for a 4 foot silver fridge we also have in our kitchen for the kids drinks so they don't open the main fridge constantly?

Jean said...

My sister has a silver one and we have been trying to come up with something to go on it. I will let you know if I think of anything.
