Adding a bit of "hair" and a hat to my little fresh corn husk ghosts is a quick and easy peazy way to turn them into witches or scarecrows! Making them was a hugely popular activity at the kid's craft table at the Pumpkin Patch Harvest Festival this year - Witches being the favorite - 5 to 1!!

The witches and scarecrows are inexpensive and very quick to assemble. Perfect activity/take home gift for Halloween and Fall themed kid's parties.
