Easy Halloween Decor for Kids | DIY Cheesecloth Ghosts | Mod Podge

This is an oldie but a goodie as far as Halloween crafts are concerned! Our Aunt Mia has been telling us to try cheesecloth ghosts for quite some time and we finally took her up on the request.

This ghost craft is super easy for kids. They are easy to hang, making awesome party decor or porch decorations. We hope you have as much fun as we did making them.

Of course let’s give credit where it’s due, Cathie & Steve are professional crafters with Plaid Crafts. As far as we can tell, they were the ones who originally did Cheesecloth Ghosts. Plus they make some other AMAZING crafts as well. Here’s a link to their original video:

*We had a hard time finding cheesecloth. Luckily on our trip to Hobby Lobby we found a package in the fabric section. Using the measurements above you will be able to make 5 cheesecloth ghosts from 1 package.
