15 Halloween Crafts and Activities for Kids

Every Day is a Crafting Day offers up this excellent idea for making a floating Halloween ghost. And the best part -- it's just as easy as it is beautiful.
To get started, Mama Tuesdee set up an empty soda bottle with a styrofoam ball on top and shaped wire around it for the ghost's outline. Once your ghost's "skeleton" is complete, simply spread cheese cloth over the top and begin spraying down the cheese cloth with starch (Tuesdee recommends using a spray bottle). Blow-dry your newly starched ghost with a hairdryer and, once it's completely dry, glue on felt eyes for a cool and creepy finishing touch. Be sure to check out the full post for a walk-through and great photos of Tuesdee's own floating ghost!
