Items Needed:

  • Faultless Liquid Starch

  • Waxed paper

  • Sticks or straws

  • Cheesecloth (enough to cover a fruit jar)

  • Glass fruit jar with lid or tin can


  1. Place a “ball” of waxed paper on top of the fruit jar/tin can to make the figure of a ghost.

  2. Dip cheesecloth into starch. Soak for a few seconds.

  3. Squeeze cheesecloth out slightly and drape it over your “form” (save your starch and re-use).

  4. Use straws or sticks to create shapes. Let it dry over night.

  5. Remove from form and decorate.
