Ghost #3 (Make 2)
Ch 200. Turn.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc in 2nd ch from hook and every ch to end. Tie off, leaving tail.

Assembly: Pin end of crocheted strip at the top of Styrofoam ball. Put glue on several inches of the wrong side of the strip and begin wrapping around ball, leaving a small gap for the eye area to peek through. Once you get to the bottom portion of the ball (before it rounds off), stop gluing. With a tapestry needle and yarn, tack strip loosely (intentionally letting some of them show) to itself as you continue wrapping to create "body". Leave tails dangling and add a few loose strands randomly. Separate plies of yarn tales for unraveled look.

FINISHING (all ghosts)
Hanging loop: With yarn and hook, pick up stitch off-center of the top of the ghost head. Ch 12, sl st in same spot that you picked up 1st st. Tie off.
Weave in ends.

Cut out felt eyes and mouth and glue them onto appropriate ghosts. Hang on your spooky tree.

This is a cute idea, but some of the directions are confusing. Not having any photos or diagrams to go by doesnt help. I can figure out Ghost #1 and #2, but #3 really needs further explanation. The assembly instructions indicate that the eye should be placed on the styro ball BEFORE beginning to wrap it, yet theres nothing that specifically says that. Not happy with this project at all.

I can't seem to find a spooky tree anywhere. Any ideas as to what to do?

i am going to make this pattern this weekend
