Instructions

  1. For each ghost, refer to materials list for measurements. (Note: If making all three ghosts, make sizes more proportionate by trimming about 1” off top of large cone only.) For each, use Foam Cutter to cut hole in Foam Ball (head), to fit onto Foam Cone (body). Remove head, insert tacky glue into hole and re-attach to body. Set aside.
  2. Tear all edges of muslin to fray. In well-ventilated, newspaper-covered area (inside box), evenly spray one side of each piece muslin with ColorTex spray texture. Let dry.
  3. To drape each ghost, find middle of sprayed muslin (by folding into fourths, pinching center and reopening.) Place center on top of head, draping over body. Evenly distribute folds. For eyes (and to hold muslin in place), insert two brads halfway down on head, going through fabric and into Foam Ball. To secure, remove, apply glue and replace brads.
  4. For large ghost arms, measure 9″ (medium ghost 6″; small ghost 4″) below top of head and reach in between folds on sides of body. (Note: Work on outside of muslin, not up underneath it.) Use craft knife to make small “X” through fabric. Insert stick at 45-degree angle on each side of ghost, going through muslin and into cone. To secure, remove sticks, apply glue and replace.
  5. Drape cheesecloth around ghost arms (like a shawl), allowing raw edges to show. To display, arrange using pumpkin and spiders to embellish. Attach spiders with tacky glue.
