Halloween Craft :: Cheesecloth Ghost
This is a fun Halloween Craft for adults or older children. It can become a fun centerpiece or hanging decoration.
Supplies: Cheesecloth (can be purchased at Lowe’s), aluminum foil, sugar, warm water, quart jars, mixing bowls, spoons, squiggly eyes, hot glue gun, black ribbon.
Cut cheesecloth large enough to drape over a quart jar. It is suggested to use 2-4 layers per ghost for best results.
Place heavy-duty foil over a quart jar to make a ghost form.
Mix 2 cups warm water and 1 cup granulated sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Soak the cut cheese cloth pieces in the sugar mixture.
Squeeze excess sugar – water out of the cloth.
Drape the cheesecloth over the ghost form, and keep layering until you use all the pieces
Dry the “ghost” for 24 hours or until it’s completely dry. Remove from the form.
Add squiggly eyes and a ribbon with a hot glue gun.
