Wanna add a little spook to your season? Try making this eerie ghost head. Super, duper simple, and guaranteed to freak out the neighbors! I placed mine in the entry way of my home on the ground. It looks like there is a ghost rising from the floor! Super spooky. This would also make a great centerpiece placed on a platter for a Halloween feast.
A large sheet of cheesecloth. 24" x 24"
A foam head form. You can find them online for about $4.
A can of heavy starch
Place the cheesecloth loosely over the foam head. In a well ventilated area, spray the heck out of the fabric so it's really saturated. With rubber gloves smooth the cheesecloth over the face of the form. Then "pile" the excess so it will stand properly when dry.
Let dry completely. Probably a few hours.
Carefully remove the form from the cloth. It's going to stick a bit, so easy does it. Once it's loose, remove the form and you should have a floating ghost head. If you look closely, you should be able to see the faint profile of a woman who died in a tragic house fire back in the year 1812. Boo!
