GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – It’s officially October which means it’s time to decorate for Halloween!
“I think Halloween is the easiest holiday to do DIY. Because scary doesn’t have to be accurate, it doesn’t have to be beautiful. It just has to be scary,” said local mom and crafter Sarah Yuhas-Schlitz.
She’s showing us how to make ghost heads you can use inside or outside on Halloween night.
Here’s what you’ll need:
– a styrofoam head
– cheese cloth
– fabric stiffener
– plastic bag
To start, take you styrofoam head and customize it how you’d like.
“I use the pumpkin carving tools to carve out the eyeballs and mouths because it make it a little bit easier,” said Yuhas-Schlitz.
Then, pour some fabric stiffener in a plastic bag and then mix with equal part water.
Mix it together in the bag and add the cheese cloth.
Squeeze it together enough to completely cover the cloth with the fabric stiffener mix.
“You can put this guy on a stand if you want to if you don’t want the fabric to stiffen while on the table so think about how you want the fabric to stiffen and what you want it to lay like,” said Yuhas-Shiltz.
Lay the cloth over the face and press in on the areas where you want the detail.
If you want to add color, paint on the face before putting on the cheese cloth.
Let it dry for 24 hours and put on display for a spooky Halloween touch!
