Extra-Eerie Ghost Costume

Time: 1-2 hours

Effort: Some sewing

Materials:

  • White sweatpants
  • White sweatshirt
  • White turtleneck
  • Hairspray
  • White hair color spray
  • White face makeup
  • Black face makeup
  • Cheesecloth
  • Needle and thread

Instructions: Have your child put on the turtleneck, sweatpants, and sweatshirt. If your child has long hair, have her bend over, and brush her hair forward. Teasing is even better! Spray her hair with hairspray so that it creates a wild look. Then spray her hair with white hair color.

Apply white face makeup to her entire face and hands. Then put a little black face makeup around the eyes. Blend this in to make her eyes look "sullen."

After the makeup dries, rip holes in pieces of the cheesecloth so they fit over your child's head. Drape it with different layers and in different directions. You can tack the cheesecloth with a stitch here and there to hold it together. Shred the bottom of cheesecloth to create a wispy look.
