Spooktacular Ghost Lamp Shade

Can you believe it’s almost Halloween already? I’m sitting here wondering where the other 9 months of the year have gone. It seems like we were just celebrating Valentine’s Day and the 4th of July, and now we are here decorating for Halloween with this Spooktacular Ghost Lamp Shade.

If my husband had his way, our entire home would be decked out like a haunted house. But since we have three children, we keep things low-key and easy! In fact, your children could even help out with this one.

I’ve made it super simple for you to recreate this Spooktacular Ghost Lamp Shade with these printable ghost silhouettes in varying sizes. All you need to do is print, cut, and adhere to the inside of your lamp shade with removable adhesive dots. If you don’t have any on hand, you can order from Amazon, or you could probably even use double-sided tape if you have that on hand instead.

Materials:

Instructions:

  1. Print the free ghost silhouettes and cut using scissors.
  2. Place the removable adhesive dots on the front of the ghost silhouettes and place on the inside of your lamp shade.
  3. Turn on your lamp for a spooky effect.

Please make sure when doing this project that you take precautions that the paper isn’t too close to the light. It could be a fire hazard. If your lamp shade is large enough, or you have a low wattage bulb, this should not be an issue.

I love that this Spooktacular Ghost Lamp Shade provides just the right amount of spookiness for Halloween! Having Philips Hue bulbs in my lamps makes it easy to change colors or even the brightest of the bulb to make an even greater spook effect.

Because this Halloween project is super simple, you could have the kids get involved in helping you decorate. The ghosts can be a little difficult to cut out because of all the points and curves, but because they are behind the lamp shade, the cuts don’t have to be exactly perfect. If you’re a perfectionist, like I am,  you may have to repeat that over and over to yourself.
