9/30 | Cheesecloth Ghosts

Hey everyone! It’s almost Halloween and you know what that means, making great DIY Halloween decorations! Seasonal projects are so popular and this time of year is one of the best times for us crafters to DIY! Today we’ll show you how we made these adorable Cheesecloth Ghosts that are perfect as decorations for a party or maybe just to hang on your porch to show your Halloween spirit! Find out how to make yours below.



  • Foam Balls
  • Cheesecloth
  • Outdoor Decou-Page
  • Fishing Line
  • Small Screw Eyes
  • Small Buttons
  • All Purpose Glue

Here’s How To Make Them:

Step 1 : Cut your cheesecloth to your desired size that will wrap around your foam ball well.
Step 2 : Pour your Outdoor Decou-Page onto a foam plate and saturate your cheesecloth.tan_edit_bcb_9849
Step 3 : Lay the cheesecloth over the foam ball and sit it onto a water bottle as the Decou-Page dries. I suggest letting it sit overnight.
Step 4 : Take your buttons and glue them onto your ghost once it’s completely dry. img_4666

Step 5  : Insert a small screw eye into the ceiling of where you’re going to hang the ghost.

  1. Tanner do you think adding some glow in the dark paint to the decou-page would work for an extra spooky touch?
