time : minutes...hours...days (including paint dry time)
difficulty : ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆
hazards : eyerolls from neighbors at your blatant display of craftiness
would i do it again? : ...maybe i'll try frankensteins next year!
i knew some ghost posts -- inspired by garden junk -- would be PERFECT to fill the spot...at least until halloween!...then maybe i'll put pilgrim hats on them or something.
besides making cute halloween decor, this project also served to use up some of our scrap wood pile -- which grew substantially after fish cut the wood for K's bed.i decided to use two big boards and one shorter board to represent me, fish, and K. go ahead and roll your eyes.
[SUPPLIES]...for a three-ghost post
> four sanded boards
- i used 2x6" scraps
> black spraypaint
> white spraypaint
- i didn't realize i was out of white spraypaint and actually used latex paint...
...it worked out well too.
> screws, drill, screwdriver
- or a kreg jig! more on that later...
> black acrylic paint, detail paintbrush
> clear waterproof topcoat
yep, i'm lazy and didn't paint the back of the ghosts.
