My Mom loves all things crafty and has a subscription to just about every design magazine available. This past week she made cheesecloth ghosts with my daughter and they are adorable! The directions only call for eyes, but my Mom took it one step further and made little ghost lips and mouth from construction paper. They were really simple to make, required very few materials and my daughter had so much fun helping her “YaYa.”
Instructions via Country Living Magazine:
Step One: Soak a piece of cheesecloth in fabric stiffener and immediately drape over the balloon. Let it dry for 10 minutes.
Step Two: Pop the balloon with a pin to reveal a hardened shape. Cut two tiny circles out of black felt for eyes and affix them to the ghost with tacky glue.
Step Three: Remove the ghost from cup and use your fingers to rough up the ends. Thread fishing line through the top of each ghost, securing with a knot to hang.
