It can become a fun centerpiece or hanging decorations around your house.  The perfect craft or project for a Halloween Party too! I would not advise you to hang them outdoors though, if they get wet or even damp they will fall apart.  You may ask me how I know that 😉

Halloween Craft - How to make Cheesecloth Ghosts

How to make Cheesecloth Ghost:


  • Cheesecloth (can be purchased at Lowe’s, Dollar Store or the grocery store)
  • aluminum foil
  • sugar
  • warm water
  • quart jars (or empty spaghetti sauce jars)
  • mixing bowls
  • spoons
  • squiggly eyes
  • hot glue gun
  • black ribbon


    1. Cut cheesecloth large enough to drape over a quart jar or an empty spaghetti sauce jar. It is suggested to use 2-4 layers per ghost for best results.
    2. Place heavy-duty foil over a quart jar to make a ghost form.
    3. Mix 2 cups warm water and 1 cup granulated sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved.  Not boiling water but not luke warm either.
    4. Soak the cut cheese cloth pieces in the sugar mixture.
    5. Squeeze excess sugar – water out of the cloth.
    6. Drape the cheesecloth over the ghost form, and keep layering until you use all the pieces
    7. Dry the “ghost” for 24 hours or until it’s completely dry. Remove from the form.
    8. Add squiggly eyes and a ribbon to hang with a hot glue gun.  You are welcome to add a mouth (if you desire).

  1. I think this method would work well to make a mummy also (because of the layering of the cheesecloth). This is Pinterest worthy! So I will re-pin . And I sure hope to get those tickets for my granddaughters! Thank You!
