  2. Add Ghost Face

    Here is where you can get creative! You can paint on the ghost face using black paint and a fine tip brush or you can use a black paint marker.

    Alternately, you can use your electronic cutting machine such as a Silhouette or Cricut to cut the ghost face from vinyl. I used my Cricut!
