Concrete Lighted Step-Spook

Go grab some rubbage and some concrete and amaze yourself. This scary little fellow is quite the head-turner! He is not that hard to make at all!
I used things that were found in my recycle box. I wanted to be able to remove them later so they needed to be soft enough to cut or be able to be left inside (like the jars). For complete detailed instructions see here
Such a funny little fellow! My aim was to make him be able to sit on a step and then be light enough to be able to be moved.
After mixing up the cement and water (bit of paint added) it's time to drape the fabric. Pick a fabric that has some fibres that will trap the concrete; something that is not too smooth. Dry test the fabric and cut to size.
He is all draped has set so now the insides can be removed. (See link below for full detailed instructions) To finish the texture mix a slurry of concrete and use a brush to smooth out any rough parts.
Let him completely harden and add a light (solar or battery operated) inside... and watch how people will be shocked! Get ready for Halloween
