Step 1: Head and Shoulders

Grab the styrofoam head scoop out the eyelids not completely just to put the clear marbles, rocks,jewels etc . Hot glue them on, this is purely optional, you can always leave the eyes as they are and jump it applying the glue all over the face ( apply generously) grab your cheese cloth stretch it around the face to capture the features of the face, now set it aside and grab your 2 wire hangers open one of them out and thread it the other as if it were shoulders and arms sticking out, tape the middle , now styrofoam the arms and stick the head on the hanger form , keep hot gluing fabric and cheese cloth as you like .


Try and go for the super shiny fabric ( white) it catches the light like crazy so keep that in mind while building , I hot glued extra fabric the hung low so when I do display it , it will look as though it's floating.

Step 2: Attach Body and Head

Now get your curtain rod stake and attach it straight into the head, I applied hot glue in the very top just to make sure it stay in place and not fall/ break etc

And voila your done you now have yourself a creepy awesomely cheap ghost!
