Make Spooky Halloween Ghosts

I am so happy to be posting this how-to! I found it about 10 months ago, and have been waiting for an opportune time to post it. The only thing is, I wish the picture was larger, because I don’t think it does the outcome justice. Oh, well. It’s still a great way to add some spooky ambiance to your dwelling this Halloween. Here’s what we’ll need to start the haunt:

  • gauze fabric (3 yards at 36″ wide)
  • 1 white plastic mask, or 2 if you want a two-sided ghost
  • 1 strand of clear twinkle lights with white wire
  • 1 small plastic ring
  • a glue gun and glue sticks

How to Make A Ghost

The supplies are minimal and the instructions are simple. First: buy yourself some chicken wire. Second: shape the chicken wire into a human figure. (I’d don a pair of work gloves for this part.)

Third: set your ghost in quiet corner somewhere outdoors and wait for Ghost Hunters to show up.

(P.S. If you're worried about your ghost getting rusty, you might want to consider spraying it with a clear coat sealant.)
