Chicken Wire Ghosts - I'm going to be honest here, I'm not sure exactly who is making all of these chicken wire ghosts for their haunts, but I'm guessing that their hands and arms are covered with tiny little red spots from where the chicken wire pierced their skin. Seriously, though, I've noticed that a ton of people lately are searching for the chicken wire ghost prop, and while it's not something that I would ever consider doing, they sure do look cool when they're done right.

life size ghost for yard decorations. made out of chicken wire and gauze.
Made the ghosts. Pretty flimsy chicken wire. Hung with fishing line (10# clear). I would use a stronger grade chicken wire next time and most definitely use the cheesecloth! I used a white bed sheet and it seemed too heavy. All in all, it was a cool looking ghost (doesn't look as good as the one in the pictures...but my 5 & 8 yr old gave me a thumbs up). This could be a project for an 11-up group just due to the complexities of cutting the wires and then attaching to other body parts. Lots of scratches on hands-wear some protective gloves. We're the only ones on our block that has a cool looking ghost- so I'm happy!!
