Cat and Ghost Streamers

This is an easy project and looks really cute hanging where a slight breeze might blow the streamers.
Parental supervision is recommended.

This project is rated AVERAGE to do.

What You Need:

Metal Cat or Ghost hanging bell
Black or White fabric
Pinking Shears
Hot glue gun
Ribbon, wide width
Ribbon, narrow width

How To Make It:

Cut streamers out of the fabric about 2 inches wide and twice as long as you want the length.
Hot glue the middle of one streamer on the bottom of the Cat or Ghost bell.
Take another streamer and turn the streamer so that it forms a cross when the streamers overlap on the bottom of the bell. Hot glue in place.
Repeat for remaining streamers.
Take a piece of the wide ribbon and gather all the streamers together below the bell and tie a bow.
Take a piece of the narrow ribbon and tie a bow above the other bow, optional.
If desired, run a piece of narrow ribbon through the hole at the top of the bell, and knot.
Hang and enjoy.
