Ghost Suckers: Take a round-headed lollipop. Lay the head in the center of a white handkerchief (disposable tissue or cloth depending on how classy/expensive you want). Fold and gather the handkerchief down around the stick and tie just below the head with a thread/ribbon/rubber band. Add 2 black dots for eyes.
Voila – a ghost. These make good party favors. I’ve got a book that suggests writing the invitation around the outside of the handkerchief before assembling and mailing them in padded envelopes.
