One of my favorite bloggers, Maria of Craft Crazy Mom, is here today showing us how to make 5 minute cheesecloth ghosts. Maria was in the middle of moving out of country while she wrote this post, she truly is craft crazy (in the best way possible)! Don’t forget to link up your Halloween crafts, recipes and decor HERE.
I love to craft on the “cheap”, especially during the holiday season. So many festivities back to back can really break the bank if you’re not careful. I also love a simple and quick project. Two year olds in the process of dropping naps are not usually very keen on you spending their play time crafting.
3” Foam Balls- $3.99
3 yards of Cheesecloth (6-18” pieces folded in half to make squares)- $1.99
Scrap Cardstock- FREE!
Scrap String/Yarn (6 pieces)- FREE!
Total Cost: $5.98 before tax and coupons
If you’re anything like me, you’ll have plenty of cardstock, pens, and some sort of string laying around in your craft hoard. If you’re the lucky few who are not craft hoarders, there is always the dollar store.
Step 1: Dab a little hot glue onto your foam ball & secure a piece of string to it. (I cut my yarn in various lengths from 12”-24”)
Step 2: Thread the string through the center of your cheesecloth square. Dab a little glue one there to make it more secure if you want.
Step 3: Make little faces for your ghosts with a pen or marker and cut them out.
Step 4: Put a little hot glue on the back of the cardstock and give your little guy a face.
Yep, it’s really that quick, that simple, and that affordable. So, go a little crazy and deck out your house this Halloween with these cute little ghosts. Can’t wait to see the rest of the projects here on See Vanessa Craft and thanks for having me!
Simple, cute, fun!
I love working with cheesecloth! I also signed up for the designer’s
