      Cheesecloth Ghosts Outdoor Halloween Deco: James "Figgy" Noonan makes spook-tacular ghost decorations out of cheesecloth. Hang these easy-to-make cheesecloth ghosts from tree branches and porch railings to create a haunting Halloween scene. Tools and Materials: Two white wire hangers, Scissors, One pair of white pantyhose, Polyester stuffing, Pliers, 16-gauge wire, Wire cutter, Gauze fabric, muslin, cotton sheets, or any lightweight fabric, Safety pins, 2 yards cheesecloth, Brewed cold coffee in a spray bottle (optional) Cheesecloth Ghosts How-To: 1. Straighten two wire hangers into two long loops, leaving hooks intact. Twist the hooks together to form a base for the neck, then twist and form loops into arms. 2. Cut the legs from a pair of white pantyhose. Stuff each leg with polyester stuffing and slide one leg onto each wire arm. Tie legs together around wire neck. 3. Stuff waist of pantyhose to create head, and place on wire neck. Tie excess material around wires to secure. Using pliers, bend tips of wire and attach 16-gauge wire to create hook. 4. Cut a 3-yard piece of gauze or lightweight fabric lengthwise down the middle. Snip into the short edges of the fabric at an angle every 2 inches. Drape the pieces over each arm, pinning at neck to secure. 5. Cut a 2-yard piece of cheesecloth down the middle. Poke wire hook through center of both pieces of fabric, draping over head and arms. 6. Spray entire ghost or just the bottom few inches with coffee, if desired, before hanging.

    Cheesecloth Ghosts from Martha Stewart We made these cheesecloth ghosts two years ago and loved it. We plan to make more this year.

    This is so cute. You could also make any form with this. #Halloween #Ghost #craft

    DIY Spooooky Ghost: You use liquid starch and cheesecloth to make this adorable ghost. Great Halloween decor for a party

    Make the shape with bottle, ball and wire. Drape over cheesecloth and spray with starch. Once dry remove supports. So clever! Next year's craft, Cris?!

    Another one - cheesecloth and starch. Maybe use gray or black cheesecloth and put this on a screen door or window screen

    this is kind of what I envisioned La Llorona to look like... but I won't go any further than that. in fact, I've said too much.....she's probably on her way now to get me! aaahhhhhhh!

    Halloween party / outdoor / haunted house decor: Ghosts of roof or stairwell window?

    marshmallow ghosts- great for classroom treats, fall bake sales, or trick or treat goodies

    Ghost Fence: For each ghost, insert a 1/4-inch-diameter dowel into an 8-inch-diameter plastic-foam ball; glue to secure. Drive the other end of the dowel into the ground. Cut up both sides of a white garbage bag; lay it over the ball. Layer one yard of cheesecloth over the bag. Gather both materials below the plastic-foam ball and tie with a ribbon. Cut three ovals from adhesive-backed black felt and place on ghost's head. Use safety pins to attach the edges of the ghosts together
