Scary DIY Cheesecloth Spirits

hauntingly beautiful

 

We’ve all seen ghosts made from cheesecloth. But when draped over a styrofoam mannequin head, a simple DIY ghost turns into a hauntingly realistic spirit. You can find styrofoam head forms at most wig/beauty supply stores as well as online.

What YOU NEED

Cheesecloth

Styrofoam mannequin heads

Sponge brush

Mod Podge

Screw eyes if hanging

Poles if staking in the ground

How to Make

 Step 1: Apply a layer of cheesecloth to head, then generously brush over head and face with glue. Use hands to smooth the cloth into the facial features. Don’t brush down the neck; stop at chin level so the fabric is loose below that.

STEP 2: Repeat until you have 4 layers (each 7 feet long) of cheesecloth. Let dry thoroughly. (No need to dry between layers.)

 

STEP 3: Tatter edges of cloth with scissors if desired. Attach a screw eye with a bit of glue to the top of the head; thread with fishing line to hang from hooks or affix heads to the stop of tall poles and place in the ground.
