Howdy! Our friend Sarah is hosting an Outdoor Ideas link party today, so Kev and I are linking up our super scary gauzy ghost idea. Check him out…

He looked even spookier out there at night! Eek!
Click on the photo above to see how we made him, and hope to see you at Sarah’s party!

    Eeeek! super awesome ghost!! My only concern would be how to store it. Do you think it would store well in a one of those rubbermaid storage boxes?

    This is darling. Think I’ll try it this weekend. One question – did you leave the paint roller stick? I don’t see it in the final photo. Thanks for the tips!

    Question Layla: I made small (table top) versions of these ghosts a few years back and when I displayed them on my porch, the morning dew (or mist?) cause the starch to go all limp. Do you have any suggestions on how to avoid this?

    Kira – for storage – my comment above could be a solution. Maybe use a spray bottle filled with water to “mist” the ghost – causing the stiffness to lessen enough to store him easily in a plastic bin. Next Halloween – prop him up on the sticks and balls and re-starch!

    This looks great! My children would love it if we had something like this outside our house, maybe one day when we have a little more outdoor space.
