SpOOOoooOOOky Floating Ghost!

Is it too early to start thinking about Halloween???  I mean I’m not one of those people OBSESSED with the holiday, but I have to admit, it’s one of those holidays that is fun to think about decorations for. I mean Labor Day is a great holiday and all (afterall….HALLOWEEN doesn’t give us a 3-day weekend!), but there’s just not much there to work with….decoration-wise.  HALLOWEEN, on the other hand, is practically BURSTING with decorating possibilities! Take a peek at the boards on Pinterest.com….some people go absolutely CRAZY decorating for Halloween…and there are some REALLY creative ideas out there!


This Floating Ghost idea really appealed to me for a couple of reasons.  First, it just looks so…..SPOOKY! :-)  Yes, that’s it. It’s a SPOoooOOOoooKY Floating Ghost!
Second, and just as important, it looks really fun to make!

I’m going to make a whole FAMILY of ghosts for my house this year!  Mommy Ghost, Daddy Ghost and lots of little baby ghosts!  I’ll name them Casper 1, 2, 3, etc. :-)   I might even make some to hang from the chandelier!

Now THAT would be SPOOoooOOOoooKY! :-)

Anyway, for a detailed tutorial with pictures, head on over to Every Day Is A Crafting Day. If you’re like me, you probably have MOST of the stuff you’ll need on hand…but a short trip to the crafting store might be in order for a styrofoam ball, cheesecloth and some spray starch.

Ohhh….I’m getting so excited to make these! I really don’t quite know what to make of the “crafting bug” I seem to have contracted lately. It’s really not like me, but all the amazing websites I come across each day are so INSPIRING….it’s hard NOT to be sucked in.  So why try?????   :-)

And that’s today’s…

    Does it matter what kind of starch? I have a can of easy on speed starch, will this work?
