Nicole™ Crafts Deco Mesh Ghost

Some believe the earliest Halloween celebrations consisted of people wearing masks so ghosts couldn't recognize them. Make this Deco Mesh ghost part of every Halloween - maybe someday you'll find out who it's hiding from.

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut two 2 yard pieces of White Iridescent mesh. Lay one piece on a flat surface. Lay the other piece going the opposite way.
  • 2
    Lay the Styrofoam ball in the center of both pieces. Gather up the first piece of mesh around the ball, then the second piece; hold in place. Secure with an Orange chenille stem, twisting tightly.
  • 3
    Create a multi-loop bow with orange mesh ribbon using an Orange chenille stem to secure bow. Tie bow securely around neck of ghost.
  • 4
    Cut cording from mask. Attach mask to ghost with adhesive circles. Note: for added security, hot glue can also be used.
  • 5
    Bend a Black chenille stem into a squiggly line for the mouth and glue to ghost.
  • 6
    To make the spider, twist four Black chenille stems together. Bend each of the four stems on each side into a V shape to make legs. Glue Black pom pom to the center for the body.
  • 7
    Cut a small felt circle. Glue spider to front of mesh and felt circle behind mesh. Tip: This is so you don't burn yourself with the hot glue through the mesh.
  • 8
    Trim ends of the mesh with a zigzag pattern.
