Spooky halloween ghosts.

These ghosts are made from a plastic halloween mask and gauze fabric.  They are very easy and inexpensive to make.  I put some in my windows, french doors, and on stakes in my graveyard.  I even put some on benches in my front yard so they look like they are sitting around talking.Â



  • 2  1/2 packages of gauze fabric (36″ X 3 yards )
  • 1 plastic mask  ( Or if you want a two sided ghost you will need two )
  • 1 strand of clear lights with white wire
  • 1 small plastic ring
  • hot glue gun

Step 1.

Take one of the gauze pieces and cut it in half.  This will be the hair and the two remaining full pieces will be the body.  Lay the two long pieces on top of each other and then take the two short pieces and do the same.  Lay them out as shown in the above photo.

Step 2.

Cut a piece of fabric that measures 1  1/2″  X  8″ and pin it through all layers, connecting the hair to the body as shown.  Stitch it through all layers.Â

Step 3.Â

Cut hair pieces into strips as shown.

Step 4.

Attach the top of the fabric strip ( attached to the hair ) to the forehead of the mask.  Now take the other end of fabric strip and attach it to the inside of the mask as shown.

Step 5.

Stitch a small plastic ring to top of fabric strip which you will use to hang ghost and also to secure the string of lights.Â

For my front window I make two ghosts and then attach them at the plastic rings.  That way there will be a ghost looking in the window and one looking out towards the yard.Â

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
