(1) box plaster of paris
(2) 1” dowels
(2) yards white fabric
(1) package cheesecloth (3 yards)
(1) 6” Styrofoam ball
(1) sheet black fun foam
(1) package paddle wire
One pair old child’s tennis shoes and jeans
Glue gun and glue sticks

Mix up the plaster as per directions. Pour into each tennis shoe and place a dowel in each shoe. Stabilize until set. Put jeans onto dowels. Wrap wire around the waistband at the midpoint of the dowel to secure. Reinforce with hot glue as needed. Pull the two dowels together at the top. Wrap with a piece of wire about 6 inches down to secure. With a knife, cut a hole approximately 1”x 2”x 1” into the Styrofoam ball. Place some hot glue into the hole and push down onto the dowels. Hold until set. Fold the two yard piece of white fabric in half and drape over Styrofoam ball. Repeat with the cheesecloth. The cheesecloth will hang over the white fabric. Cut desired facial expressions out of the black Fun Foam. Hot glue to secure. Embellish with baseball hats, trick-or-treat bags, or anything you can think of to make your ghost friendly.
