The deepening chill in the autumn air finally brings us to sweater-wearing weather. The many hues of golds, oranges, reds and browns of the changing landscape are not unwelcome for the vibrant colors do herald in the upcoming holiday season. Autumn of course is the perfect time for pumpkins, scarecrows, brooms and bats and lively cheesecloth ghosties.

The cheesecloth ghost is easy to make and handy as a table decoration or to hang in a window for Halloween. A yard of cheesecloth, warm sugar water or fabric stiffener, a balloon and tall coffee can or other prop to tape the balloon to and a bit of felt are all that is needed. Cut the yard of cheesecloth into three pieces, soak all in the warm solution and drape over the balloon and prop or other makeshift ghost form, let dry overnight till quite stiff, glue on ghost eyes cut out of black felt and hang or place on the table for decoration.
