2 Googley Eyes
- First wash and dry your jars so they are ready for serving.
- Then cut off the long skinny part of the balloon and cut part of the other end of the balloon as well. You want there to be a hole on each end of the balloon.
- Stretch the balloon over the cup.
- Lift one end of the balloon on the jar and make a very small slit in the balloon for the mouth. It will stretch and form an ‘O’ shape on it’s own.
- Hot glue two googley eyes onto the balloon.
That’s it! Your ghost is complete! Add a fun straw or fill with some Halloween treats and serve to your guests. These make great party favors, too Everyone is sure to “ooh” and “ahh” over how adorable your ghost jars are!
