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!

I’m so jealous of your fallen leaves. It seems we have gone from summer to winter 🙁 Skipped fall. Love the ghosty!!!
LOVE it! I may make something like this for the kiddos. I don’t do enough decor for the kids, I seem to get a little carried away on what I like. haha. …. speaking of what I like, I hope you check out my link on TDC’s link party! http://lh5.ggpht.com/-FnXxP86WTVI/To0Rfw_sysI/AAAAAAAAPH4/SRZovpwk2hg/image_thumb%25255B1%25255D.png?imgmax=800
I am so impressed.
My kids would want to be your kids if they saw this.
I need to be better about adding some spooky looky things to the house during October….my kids would give me the “cool mom award” if I did. 🙂
Were y’all on the Ellen show that aired yesterday? I thought I saw you in the audience!

Very cute! 🙂 I bet he would look cool at night with some christmas lights inside to make him glow 🙂

I was just looking through your shop page and noticed the photography tips to buy…is it available yet? I didn’t see a buy button but wasnt sure if maybe the link wasn’t working?

He looks so spooky! What a fun project! 🙂
Where can I buy the cheese cloth and liquid starch? Would a craft store sell that stuff?
Hmmm…I’m not sure about a craft store. I got ours at Lowes and the grocery store! 🙂

What a fantastic idea. I have been brainstorming yard decoations with my nine year old and we will for sure do this!

You are very creative.
And fun : )
Fun people are the best!
I love him!!! He is too cute! I joined Sarah’s party for the first time and I am so excited! Happy Halloween!

So cool! I bet it’s super scary to see at night! 🙂
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?
Looks great! My boys would LOVE that! That might be our Halloween project this weekend. Good job!
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!
That is orsome I love it!! :))
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.
