Jute Ghost

I have decided not to bring out my Fall decorations this year. Orange is not my favorite color and the Fall is just Summer dying. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy the cool air, the smell of falling leaves and bon fires. However, I am not a pumpkin spice person. I am more of a caramel apple person. 

Instead of bringing out my old decorations, I’m keeping it simple in the house this year. I have bought some cute dishtowels for the kitchen, a few little decorations from the dollar store and having fun creating some of my own things. Thats just the minimalist in me. 

I recently created this cute little jute ghost.

I didn’t really plan on it being this color or material but here we are.

I went to the dollar (and a quarter) store in search of some white nautical rope for this project but all I could find was this jute rope. It took three bundles for this project. 

Using a cardboard box, I cut out a half circle, then used a hot glue gun to glue the rope together. I left the ends long enough so I could trim them and unravel the each strand. Then I cut out some eyes and a mouth from the same cardboard and the ghost came alive. 

I love how he looks but now realizing I could have just used the rope from a new mop head. 

Do you decorate for halloween? I throw in a few little ghost or jack o lanterns but that’s about all. It just brings back those childhood memories to have a little fun. 


  1. On the road we used to decorate some, but not any more. Oh and you said: I am not a pumpkin spice person....
    We aren't either but sure see a lot of that advertised this time of year.
    Love you ghost and the ability you have to create. good stuff.
    Sherry & jack trying to enjoy Florida, we have cooled down some.

  2. The little ghost is so cute. I think I'll try to make one myself.
    No, I don't decorate for Halloween or any holiday except for Christmas.
    I had a surprise in my mailbox today.
    Thank you so much!! The potholder is a perfect addition to my collection.
    Love the mini granny square on the card too.
