I think I am in the Halloween mode lately.
Could it be my eight grandchildren, (and one on the way), that make me think of the holiday more than usual as we talk about what they are going to be for the holiday?
Whatever the cause, I have been in the mood to create a few Halloween decorations.
I shared with you my Halloween Lampshade HERE.
And one of my cheesecloth ghosts HERE .
Today I am going to share another ghost.
I have seen all of the cute little cheesecloth ghosts that stand, and maybe I will try one of those, but today I wanted to try something a bit different. I wanted my ghosts to sit over candlesticks and have a bit of movement.
Cheesecloth Candlestick Ghosts
I began my cheesecloth candlestick ghosts by creating a base out of two plastic cups. I taped the cups together to make them sturdy.
Another coat of the “stiffy” and another piece of the cheesecloth were added. I only painted the” stiffy” over the head area and slightly down what might be the neck of the ghost.
I continued to added coats of the “stiffy” until it was well covered. I would say I used about five layers.
The ghosts were left to dry overnight.
I placed each ghost on a candlestick and cut the skirt of the ghost into smaller sections.
I placed the ghosts over white candles on a set of tall candlesticks and placed them in my fireplace setting.
I also set a pair over the sconces on the wall.
