Cagey Ghosts

Total Time Needed: 1-2 Hours

Out-of-use tomato cages are a restless bunch. Come Halloween, they haunt front porches as glowing ghosts.


  • Tomato cage
  • Duct tape
  • String lights
  • Twist ties
  • Socks
  • Sticks
  • Marker or craft foam (for facial features)
  • White twin sheet


Cagey Ghosts - Step 1

1. To make one, set up the cage as shown. To form the head, use duct tape to secure the rounded prongs of the cage. Thread the lights through the cage, and secure them with twist ties.

2. For each arm, ball up two socks and duct-tape them to a stick, placed in the ground.

3. Add marker or pinned-on craft foam facial features to a white twin sheet, then drape it over the structure.
