This is not original, but with Halloween in just a few days (yippeeee!!) I had to share this super easy craft I discovered while shopping. Sweet fibre ghosts!!
All you need is this:
Set up some 'molds'.
You are supposed to set up your sculpture first and then spray it. I found it easier to do it the other way around. The cheesecloth is so light that the force of the spray pushes your design around! So, cut your cheesecloth to the size you want, lay it on a surface and spray it all over until thoroughly moist. Square pieces are great because they make long raggy points. Then you pick it up and set it onto the mold. While wet with the spray, it's really easy to manipulate. And then it stays put!
This takes an hour to dry. I tied threads around the necks to help shape it. Just pulling the string sets the cheesecloth into position and it stays. (I find this so remarkable!)
It's apparently non-toxic. My hands feel all powerdery now, so I'm sure it's just starch & water. You could do this on a towel, or wipe up the floor after like I did.
FUN!! Once dry, string them up and let them float in the wind! wooooooooooooooooooooooo!
