Make a Ghost Mobile for Halloween. - The Magic Onions

Make a Ghost Mobile for Halloween.


We have been saving our white egg shells to make a little ghost mobile for Halloween. Who knew eggshells could make such cute little ghosts?

I saved the eggshells from our morning omelettes and washed and dried them.

Kitty and Teddy used a black permanent marker to draw little eyes onto the eggshells.

Teddy’s ghosts look like they have had a big night out on the town!

Use anything with a sharp point to carefully make a hole in the tops of the eggshells.


Get a piece of string and tie a knot at the bottom of it.

Thread the string through the hole in the eggshell and slide the eggshell down along the string until it stops above the knot. This knot will hold your first eggshell ghost in place. Make another knot a little space above your first ghost and thread the second ghost along until it is held in place by the second knot… continue until each ghost has a spot on the string…. and…

Voila! The cutest little ghost mobile Halloween has ever seen!

Blessings and magic,

  1. Oh, those are so cute! I think we have one or two hens that lay white-ish eggs. I’ll have to start saving those up, my girls would love this!

  2. Love this idea. Cute, cute, cute!!

  3. Clever and very thrifty.

  4. Love it! Ours would be brown ghosts since we usually buy brown eggs (local ones are brown here).

  5. Cute! We don’t have any white egg layers. Most of our eggs are pretty dark browns, but one chicken lays light, creamy-tan coloured eggs, maybe we could try those.

    Or, (!) I wonder if we could hydrogen peroxide them whitish? We’ll have to try. :P

  6. You win! That mobile really is cute.

  7. How did you ever think of this? Brilliant!

    I mean we all know already that you are brilliant but this is even more brilliant!

    Can you tell I love it?
