Create Ghost's Framework
Layer a paint roller extension pole and two yardsticks to create a "skeleton" for your ghost (Image 1). Use a short large-headed nail to attach both yardsticks to the paint roller extension pole, one on top of the other (Image 2).
Secure Extension Pole
Find a non-windy outdoor spot to temporarily drive the paint roller extension pole into the ground to make draping the ghost easier.
Attach Ghost's Head
Push a large foam ball onto the top of the paint roller extension pole to create the ghost's head.
