Fabric Ghosts Offer Lasting Boos!

By: Shannon Staker for Shannon makes stuff

Shannon Staker's ghost how-to offers a lasting Halloween decoration idea that can be used and re-used year after year. Ghosts made of fabric, rather than tissue, are durable and just as frightening.


  • Extra thick thread
  • Two googly eyes
  • Two square pieces of fabric (suggested: 15 inches by 15 inches)
  • Needle


  1. Place a square piece of fabric on the ground.

  2. Grab the second piece of fabric and bunch it all up into a ball.

  3. Place the rolled up fabric in the center of the square piece.

  4. Grab the bunched up fabric from underneath the square piece and let the loose fabric hang down straight.

  5. Grab the fabric tight in your fingers.

  6. Tie a string aroung the entire neck. Pull as tight as you can, without breaking your thread.

  7. Take your threaded needle and slide in through the top of the ghosts head.

  8. Tie it into a knot and cut the thread about 16 inches or so depending on how low you want them to hang from what you are hanging them from.

  9. Use hot glue and glue on some beady eyes.

  10. There you have it, a friendly cloth ghost!

  11. Now grab your helper and head outside.

  12. Add one to your wreath for a fresh Halloween look.

  13. Hang a bunch and there you have it a ghost tree.
