What do you do when Pottery Barn has an amazing Halloween mummy ghost but it is $99??!?! You make it yourself. I couldn’t afford to pay that much for seasonal decor but I could afford to get the items from Consumer Crafts and whip up DIY outdoor Halloween decorations myself in just minutes!
My mummy ghost DIY outdoor Halloween decorations version is above and you can compare with the Pottery Barn original below. Not an exact replica but scary enough to frighten any trick or treaters around our home.
- Foam Head ($6.97)
- Cheese Cloth ($1.57) (I used 4 packages)
- Dark Brown Craft Paint
- Brown Tim Holtz Distress Ink
- Fishing Line
- Threaded Hook
- Paint Brush
Even if you need to purchase ALL of the materials above, you can make your own ghost for less than $20!
I am just going to tell you that this ghost has already scared me multiple times when I look out the sidelights of our front door! You can see in the image below how I have it tied up with the fishing line.
