What you need:
Stiffy ® Fabric Stiffener, 16 oz.
Tin foil
Wax paper
Chip can
Plastic ball
Craft bowl
1 yard Cheesecloth


1. Tear off a section of tin foil that is 15” long. Roll it into a tube shape. Wrap the tube shape with wax paper. Fold the tube in half and place inside the chip can fold the ends of the tube so they look like stretched arms. Place the ball on top of the chip can and arms.

2. Cut the cheesecloth into 3 different pieces. (1 large, 1 med and 1 small)

3. Cover your work surface with a protective cover. Place the large piece of cheesecloth in the bowl, saturate with Stiffy. Place the large piece over the chip can mold. Gather the bottom to look spooky. Repeat with the medium size cloth and then with the small cloth. Adjust as necessary.

4. Allow to dry (about 6 hours) and remove the chip can mold.

Tip: Create hanging ghosts by threading fishing line through the top and hang from trees or the ceiling.
