Easy to make cheesecloth ghosts

Nothing beats the classics! These cheesecloth ghosts have been around since the first bed sheet ghost and have been a real favorite in both kindergartens and at home ever since. They are super easy to make and there are so many ways to customize them – add wire to your shape to create arms, add cord and turn them into dolls, hang them from the ceiling or put them on . You can let them float freely or use cornstarch, craft glue, or even cement to make them stiff.

Most hobbyists use balloons as a base, but you can also use a styrofoam ball, paper cup, skull, or mask from the costume store. You just need to make sure that you can pull your base out from under the cheesecloth once it dries. Balloons are perfect for this because you can pop them easily. Here are all the supplies you need for a very classic version of the cheesecloth ghost:

  • Cheesecloth
  • food starch
  • Black felt
  • balloon
  • plastic bottle

Instructions for making cheesecloth ghosts

First, start by creating your base. Inflate the balloon, tape it to a plastic bottle, making sure that it stays upright. If you want your mind to have arms, twist some wire around the bottle and shape it however you like. Place newspaper under the base to catch drops while the ghost dries.

Now start making homemade starch glue. While you can find it at many craft stores, it costs a lot more than if you just make it yourself. Pour 2 cups of water into a microwave-safe container. Then add a cup of cornstarch and place the mixture in the microwave. Stir every 30 seconds until it thickens. It should take about 2 minutes total. Alternatively, you can do the entire process in a saucepan on the stovetop. Now put your starch glue aside for a few seconds to cool it down a bit.

Dip the cheesecloth in the starch and stir until completely coated. Gently wring it out and place it over your prepared base. Model it now, because once it is dry there is nothing you can do about it. Now let the whole thing dry completely. When it is stiff, carefully take the cheesecloth out of the mold and glue on two felt eyes and a mouth.

Now all you have to do is find a good place to place or hang your ghost and scare your friends with it.
