DIY Make a Lawn Ghost

DIY Make a Lawn Ghost

 

Use our iron wreath stands ,  a large styrofoam ball, cheesecloth and Aleene's Aleene's Stiffen Quick or Stiffy Fabric Stiffener to make lawn ghosts.

Instructions

1. Place a Styrofoam ball on the top of the iron wreath stand
2. Use  Stiffy Fabric Stiffener and Draping Liquid to form your ghosts (see directions below) or use cheesecloth alone. If you are not stiffening the fabric just attach it to the Styrofoam ball with greening pins. To make a circle of ghosts  tie  each of the ghosts together by using the bottom corner of the cheese cloth.

If you want to use Fabric Stiffener and Draping Liquid on your ghosts

1. Wear gloves to keep hands clean. Use a bowl or bag large enough for your fabric and pour enough liquid into the bowl to cover fabric.
2. Work liquid into fabric until saturated.
3. Holding fabric over bowl, squeeze out excess liquid.
4. Cover the Styrofoam ball with  protective wrap then drape your saturated fabric over the styrofoam ball (attached to the iron stand).
5. While shaping over the form, continue removing excess stiffener.
6.Flare out the lower edges of the gauze and let dry overnight.
7. Use a damp cloth for easy cleanup.

Once they've dried, carefully lift the ghosts from the wreath stand. They should stand freely on a flat surface or you can hang them with fish line. .
