Be creative with your cheesecloth ghosts! I had an old light fixture hanging around and when I first took this off the light globe it reminded me of a ghost. So I used it it a couple different ways. The first way was to put it on top of another glass vase and layered it with cheesecloth without “arms”.

The second way I used it was to cover it directly to make a smaller ghost. I didn’t put wax paper over the top to test and see how it would work and because I wanted to use the full shape of the light. When it dried it pull right off the glass but it was easier to take off the waxed paper.

Here are my three different Ghosts: The back ghost is the one with the wire arms, the ghost on the left is done with the light cover without arms and the one on the right is just the light cover. Are they not just the cutest little guys!

Diva Tip: Put a bow on one and you have a girl ghost, spray them with glow in the dark spray paint and they will glow or put a battery operated candle under them! Just let your imagination go crazy!
