Friendly Ghosts

These spirited little fellows are a cinch to make once you've set up a workstation. To do so, stack one small paper cup atop another that's turned upside down. (For extra stability, tape the cups together.) Inflate a small balloon and rest it in the top cup. Cut cheesecloth into pieces that measure about eight inches square and fill a bowl with fabric stiffener 

Step 1
Soak a piece of cheese cloth in fabric stiffener and immediately drape it over the balloon.
Let dry for 10 minutes.

Step 2
Pop the balloon with a pin to reveal a hardened shape.
Cut two tiny circles out of black felt for 
eyes and affix them to the ghost with tacky glue.

Step 3
Remove the ghost from the cup and use your 
fingers to rough up the ends. Thread fishing
line through the top of each ghost, securing
with a knot to hang.
