You will need:
-Cheesecloth (available in the grocery store baking aisle)
-Mason jar or baby food jar
1. Cut three to five pieces of cheesecloth (per ghost) into wide strips. Put them all in a bowl and soak with fabric stiffener.
2. Drape the cheesecloth pieces over the Mason jar. Layer each piece in different directions to create a spooky ghost effect.
3. Let your ghost dry for at least six hours (preferably overnight). Remove the jar, and glue googly eyes onto the cheesecloth.
