Floating Ghost; Halloween Craft DIY

It's CRAFT DAY!!! I get super excited about craft day.

ToDaY we are making a floating ghost! See the video here:

For this craft you will need:

  • Cheesecloth.
  • Liquid Starch (recipe after this list).
  • A ball, balloon, or light bulb,
  • A jar or pop bottle.
  • A cookie sheet.
  • Scissors.
  • Tape.
  • Embellishments (eyes, bows, whatever you want to place on the ghost). 

Liquid Starch recipe:

  • 2.5 cups water
  • 1.5 tablespoons of starch (I used corn starch)
  • Mix the two in a pan, whisk well to ensure there are no lumps
  • bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute
  • remove from the heat and cool to room temperature.
  • Once cooled, place in bowl or spray bottle. 


  • Cut the cheesecloth to length
  • Soak in the liquid starch and place onto mold

  • Wait for it to dry
  • When dry, remove it from the mold.
  • Then add the embellishments! 
  • That's it, you have a floating ghost.
