The Easiest Cheesecloth Ghosts

Cheesecloth ghosts are not a new craft, but one special ingredient makes these SUPER easy! You will love making these with your kids, grandkids or just for yourself.
To make these floating ghosts you will need the following supplies:
Stiffen Stuff Fabric Stiffener
Plastic cups
Optional: Sharpie or felt
Blow up your balloon and sit in the cup. This will determine the size of your ghost.
Drape the cheesecloth over the balloon set up and arrange to your liking. I like the fabric to be sweeping behind the ghost like it is really moving and not too neat.
Here is what makes this craft SUPER SIMPLE! Spray all over with Stiffen Stuff. Be sure to do this outside or cover your work area well before spraying. Most similar projects call for a cornstarch concoction or glue that is messy and has a long dry time.
Let your ghost fully dry, about an hour or so and it's complete! You can add eyes and a mouth with a Sharpie or felt if you like at this point. We left ours plain.
Quick, easy and cute! Boo!
