Using black thread, insert needle into the back of the ghost, pulling it all the way through the front where you want the first eye. Make a French knot and push the needle back through, coming out in the same location you originally started on the back of the ghost. Insert needle back into the same location, coming out where you want the second eye placed. Make another French knot, pulling all the way back through to the original location. Repeat one more time for the mouth, this time creating two French knots before pulling the thread through the back again. Tie both ends of the black thread together, snip ends. Push the knot into the body of the ghost, erasing all trace of entry.
Using the end of the white thread you pulled through the top of the ghost’s head, thread on a jump ring. Insert end of thread back into the top of the ghost’s head, through the bottom of the ghost and pulling tight. Securely weave in ends on the bottom of the ghost. Attach French hook or other preferred jewelry hardware to finish.
