These spooky little spirits come with open arms (and hold the chalkboard place card for you to find your seat).

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Build a mold for the ghost body: Cut a wooden skewer into thirds and poke through the bottom of a paper plate as shown. Thread a styrofoam ball onto the middle skewer. Further secure skewers to plate with tape, if desired, so they stand upright.

Step 2

Saturate cloth in fabric stiffener and drape over mold to cover completely. After cloth dries (up to 3 hours or overnight), carefully lift ghost off mold.
