Ghostly treasure

This is the newest addition to my Halloween stuff. I made the ghost with 2 cheese cloths (cut in half, giving me 4 pieces) and a bottle of fabric stiffener. Blow up a balloon to the size you would like. I used a 11" and placed on a coffee can. Place wax paper down on your work surface. Then mix the stiffener according to the directions. I did a 3 to 1 mix. Place the cheese cloth and stiffener in a zip lock bag. Mash everything together, then pull out the cloth. Lay it over the balloon with some wrinkles. After all it is a ghost and shouldn't be perfect. I put a ribbon around the ghost for a more decorative look.

For the eyes I used George cut at 3". Bat and spiders are from paper dolls. Bat is 5" and spiders are cut at 3". Using 2 faced puffy foam to attach. They seem to be holding on great.
