Don't forget these tenants - the kind you can't evict. Our simple Baby Ghost's unique construction gives it a creepy sway.

  • About 16 inches of fishing line
  • Scissors
  • 3 cotton balls
  • 12-inch square of gauze
  • Black permanent marker or black acrylic paint
  • Masking tape


Baby Ghost - Step 1

1. Bend the pipe cleaner to create the ghost's shoulders.

2. Cut a 10-inch length of fishing line and tie one end around the middle of the shoulder piece. Assemble the rest of the pieces as shown, threading the line through the center of the gauze and clustering the cotton balls around the line under the gauze.
