Cheesecloth Ghost In Style

Today I'm going to share with you my "Haunted House" table. The star of the show is my cheesecloth ghost and in the background we have a "scary haunted house," with dead tree limbs, felt owls and a sign as added décor.

I really wanted to spend more time on this entryway table and make it pretty awesome upon entering the house....unfortunately this was one of my last projects I got too in my living room and I didn't have a whole lot of time to spend on it. Since I moved into a larger house this year most of my decorations are new and mainly DIY projects. Since I didn't have a whole lot of time I decided that I would focus mainly on the fall décor this year.

Anyways what Halloween décor I do have I love especially these cute little cheesecloth ghost. To make cheesecloth ghost you need cheesecloth, liquid starch, and something for the cheesecloth to drape over while it dries like a bottle and a ball. You can find many ways to do this online. I decided I wanted 3, one for each of my kids. My middle daughter helped me decide how to make the ghost. She wanted them to look like they were dancing so dancing ghost we have.

 This ghost is my oldest daughter Jaden and we decided to put a tutu on her. You need a dress to go dancing right? Since my daughter has entered high school there are dances and they have to have fancy dresses, so it seemed like the perfect idea for her ghost.
Now this ghost is my middle daughter Cameron and for a dance you need beautiful hair and what hair would be complete without a pretty bow? This was the perfect idea for her ghost because Cameron is known for her hair bows. I make all her hair bows and people always tell me they look forward to seeing her bows each day.

Now this little ghost is my little man Zane. When going to a dance you need a suit and tie right? Well this was just the perfect touch to this little ghost. Now go get your groove on!

Now here is the background behind the ghost. As you see I have some light up candles, dead tree limbs, felt owls, a sign, and a "scary haunted house."

 I made this sign because our last name is Secret...so here lies many Secrets at this haunted house.
For the owls I just made them from felt and hung them in the trees. These also represent my kiddos :)
They find it funny when I make stuff of them.

Here is the final product, my somewhat scary, haunted house. I know my table is a little boring but I think the ghost add a nice touch to it especially since they came in style!
So how do you decorate your tables for Halloween?
Thanks for stopping in, until next time...
