Halloween is almost my family’s favorite holiday. (It is hard to compete with Christmas.) We set out of decorations in September and have our costumes planned out. We like cute Halloween themed decorations and this pretty little ghost fits the right in. She sits happily on a shelf with some of our other decorations.

This is a quick and fun project that will take you no more than 2 hours. (I think mine took an hour). All you really need is yarn and thread but the safety eyes and little spider button add to this pretty little ghosts cuteness. 

If you want to make more Halloween and fall decor, check out the Easy Crochet Scarecrow and Black Cat pattern that compliments this little ghost.
