The boys and I had so much fun making these spooky floating cheesecloth ghosts yesterday.
Here are the supplies I used but really, you can use just about anything to make your stand, get creative with what you have on hand.
Cheesecloth- found mine at the dollar store
Cornstarch and Water
I inserted the coat hanger into the bottle and curved the wire to make arms on each side. I blew up a balloon and taped it on top of the bottle.
I made homemade liquid starch by mixing 2 cups of water and one cup of cornstarch. I heated it up in the microwave stiring about every 20 seconds until it had a consistancy of shortning. Next I cut the strips of cheesecloth and covered them in the starch, I then rinsed out the cheese cloth under water to get any clumps out.
You will want to drape the pieces of cheesecloth one at a time over your bottle to create the form of the ghost.
Let it try overnight, pop the balloon and add some eyes. Voila you have a cute spooky little ghost.
For my next ghost I tried crepe paper and fabric starch. Although it worked the cheese cloth turned out much better!
I grabbed some fishing string and hung them on the ceiling fans, we can’t wait to make more!
Thanks for stopping in today, have a fabulous rest of the weekend!
