Create Eyes and Mouth

Cut two eyes and a mouth out of black felt (Image 1). Use fabric glue to attach felt eyes and mouth to the ghost's head (Image 2).

Remove Small Foam Balls

Gently remove the two small foam balls from under cheesecloth.

Attach Fishing Line to Arms

Use a large sewing needle to thread a long length of fishing line through the fabric of each hand. Triple-knot the fishing line so the ghost can move freely in the breeze without the threat of blowing away.
