    * Cheesecloth * 20 ct. light set (white cord preferred) * Black Felt or cloth (or Black Vinyl for Silhouette/Cricut if you have one) * ModgePodge or 50/50 mixture of glue/water * scissors * tacky glue * popsicle molds or small dixie cups I started out by unfolding my cheesecloth. It came in a big folded ribbon. I ended up using 2 layers of it in roughly a 7″ x 7″ square. Next I draped the cheesecloth over my popsicle mold and then used my glue mixture (50% Elmer’s glue mixed with 50% water) and a paintbrush and painted the top half of the cheesecloth over the mold. {I tried using spray adhesive, however it didn’t quite stiffen the cheese cloth enough. The spray adhesive only stiffened my arm hair! The glue mixture worked great!) While the glue was drying I cut faces and mouths out of black felt. Once the ghosts were dry, I carefully pulled the cheesecloth off the molds and using tacky glue, glued on the felt pieces for the face. Insert a light through the top of the cheesecloth. Some of mine just poked right through and others I had to help by cutting a small slit in the top. (I purchased my string of lights at Hobby Lobby in the craft section where they have those glass block craft ideas. My string had the lights really close to one another so I opted to insert a ghost every other light. I believe if you use actual Christmas lights (white cord of course) they will be farther apart and you can do a ghost on every light.) The pictures don’t even do them justice when they are hung and lit!

Ghost Cookies - Vienna Cookies Dipped in White Chocolate. Nutter Butters work great! I cut off the bottom to make a ghost shape.

Since we didn’t want to scare our little gobblins away, festive treats such as hanging bat cookies, pumpkin & owl cookies, mummy-mallows (mummy-head marshmallows), boo-meringues (meringue ghosts), white chocolate drizzled caramel apples, & chocolate skeleton keys were displayed.

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