Spooky Stepladder Ghost Decoration

I did this years ago, but it was really fun, and met with a lot of excitement by those who came by for Halloween. I set up a 6 foot stepladder, close to the house and kind of apart from the light, which was on so kids wouldn't trip and fall. I hung a white sheet over the ladder, and set a very small, moving fan on the fold out part where you put a can of paint or whatever. (The ladder is turned so that the fold out part is at the back).

Now, to top it off, put a good size pumpkin, heavy enough to hold the sheet in place, (or tack the sheet first), on top of the ladder, with a really good face carved on it. You can use a candle, or be safe and use something that is not going to burn. I did use a candle, as I was watching constantly.

Here is the very best part, tuck a CD player or such in a safe place, and play appropriate, spooky, Halloween sounds. The combination of flickering light, slightly waving sheet, with the fan aimed down to just give the hint of movement, then the spooky sounds? It was a hit!
