This big Ghost makes a great decoration by a doorway.
- Wallpaper paste
- Paint (optional)
- String for hanging
- Drop cloth, bowl, scissors
- Take strips of newspaper and soak in wallpaper paste. Use to cover top half or so of blown up balloon. Do just a few layers and let dry over night. Then add more layers. Let dry.
- Remove balloon (burst if necessary) and get BIG sheets of paper (whole sheets from a newspaper work). Soak the whole sheet and drape over the shell you have made, letting it fall in folds. You will have to have the shell you made held away from the surface you are working on by putting something like a 2-litre soda bottle under it. Let the sheet dry and maybe add another top.
- Paint the finished work white or with luminous paints and cut out or paint eyes - - there you have it, a ghost!!
