Cheesecloth Ghost

I make these adorable ghosts every year and often give as gifts.


  • Cheesecloth
  • White sugar
  • Warm water
  • Bowl
  • Black and white felt for eyes (or purchase google eyes)
  • Scissors, aluminum foil, small jar or bottle
General Instructions
  • Make a mixture of about 2 cups warm water with 1 cup white sugar. Stir to dissolve. While sugar is dissolving make a form to make your ghost. I used a small jar covered with aluminum foil in the shape of a ghost.

  • Once sugar has completely dissolved soak pieces of cheesecloth in mixture. Remove and drape over "ghost form". Keep layering until you have about 3-4 layers of cheesecloth over the entire form.

  • Allow to dry a minimum of overnight. May take longer.

  • Once dry remove form from underneath. Your ghost should be quite firm.

  • Decorate with eyes, nose, a hat or whatever you choose.

  • These make great Halloween decorations for dinner tables, at your doorway or on your desk.
