  1. Use the glue to draw an outline of a ghost onto the wax paper. Let this set for five seconds.
  2. Use more glue to fill in the ghost. Let this dry for two days, and then peel it off the wax paper.
  3. Use a permanent marker to draw some features.
  4. Poke a small hole on the top and string the ghost onto a piece of yarn. Embellish with beads if you wish.

I remember making something similar with my mom during the holidays. Thanks to for jogging my memory!
