Instructables
This is a great thing to scare your friends and family with.  Baisically it is a spirit trying to escape from your wall.

Materials:

~ 2x3- foot birch 1/2- inch plywood panel ( i used something bigger you could use whatever u          want but this measurement is just a suggestion because u could also put it into a book  case) 
~ Plastic Mask
~ Manicure plastic hand or manikin hand
~ Craft Glue (I used gorilla glue)
~ Celluclay paper- mache
~ Spreader (I used my fingers)
~ Sandpaper (It doesn't matter what grade it is)
~ Latex paint

Step 1: Finding the items u need

Picture of Finding the items u need
In order to find the mask that is easy go to Michaels crafts or a craft store or a costume shop. the manicure practice hand can be found at sally's beauty supply or a beauty supply store like that but if u would like to use a mainkin hand ( which is harder to find) ask around at a clothing store. The wood can be found at your local hardware store or lumber yard. The Celluclay can be found at a craft store i used the powdery block but i suggest the paper sheets it is easier because what i used was way to messy. and it wasn't as smooth. 

Step 2: Measurements

If u are using a bookshelf, measure the bookshelf to make the plywood as the same size. 

But if u are using it free floating than whatever size u want is fine.

Step 3: Making it to hang up on the wall

Put the picture frame hangers on the back of the plywood before you start ( i was stupid and did it last)

Step 4: Removing the back of the hand

I found that trying to use a bread knife is dangerous so i melted it down on a hot pan then sanding down the rest with a power sander worked best.

Step 5: Placement

Picture of Placement
Place the mask on the board about center then put the hand next to it a bit lower than the mask on an angle should work best. Face the palm out to make it look as if it is reaching out to you.
Hey, if you got this idea from http://www.bhg.com/holidays/halloween/indoor-decorating/ghosts-in-the-bookcase-halloween-project/, it would be nice to give credit.
Definitely seems that way at least...

Been thinking along the same lines, but to use latex instead of the celluclay.
That way you could hve a mechanical movement of the hand and head or lips as well, maybe some glowies behind the eyes as well....

That turned out GREAT ! Ive never seen celluclay but then I haven't really been looking for a product like it but it seems to have a nice moldability, whats it like when it drys? is it hard like plaster or more like plastic? is it water resistent? How heavy is it when dry? Meaning is it heavier than it looks or lighter ?

it is more like paper mache it dries very papery and light

Did anyone else think that this would make a great Solo in carbonite? or is it just me?
That was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw it.
good call but i'd mold my own face if i was doing that
Very Very Cool!!
