I love these cheese cloth ghosts. They are very easy to make and a fun project for kids. Follow the instructions below to make your own.
What you will need:
- Spray starch
- Cheese cloth
- Soda bottle
- Metal hanger
Bend the hanger to look like arms and tape to top of soda bottle. Blow balloon to make a medium sized head for your ghost. Tape the balloon and hanger to make sure everything is secure.
Here is a front view.
If you don't have a soda bottle and hanger, or you want to make a smaller ghosts, use whatever you have around the house to make a ghost-like shape.
I taped plastic spoons to a spray can to make a smaller ghost. I then covered it with a plastic bag to protect the spray paint.
After you made your ghost shapes, cut a square of cheese cloth. There should be enough fabric to drape around the "feet" of the ghost.
Spray the cheese cloth with starch spray. I put 3 coats on my ghosts. You could also use some Elmer's glue to add more stability.
