Tutorial Tuesday: Cheesecloth Ghosts

I love Halloween, but I'm not into scary Halloween I just like the fun cute stuff!  I wanted to put up some stuff for Halloween today though, so I made some ghosts out of cheesecloth.

You will need:
Clothing Starch
Black Felt
Glue Gun
Fishing Line (not pictured)

 Choose some containers and cut your cheese cloth to lay over you container and touch the surface on either side.

Completely submerge the cheesecloth into the liquid clothes starch and squeeze out the excess.

Unfold the cheesecloth and lay it over our containers and allow to dry completely.

Cut out one large oval and two small ovals from your felt and apply hot glue to the back, adhere the pieces to the dry cheesecloth in and eyes and mouth arrangement.
String fishing line to the top and hang wherever you desire!!

So much fun!!
