Pinterest Do – Chicken Wire Ghost

I just love Halloween!  It’s the one time a year that it’s okay for adults to dress up in funky, fun costumes and shamelessly eat candy and you can let your imagination run wild of all the crazy scary stuff you can create!

Do you see the ghost?  This is another pinterest must do! (A previous must do is: Better Smelling Mattress)

Chicken wire ghosts

I found this chicken wire ghost on Pinterest, it took me a while to track down the original site because it wasn’t pinned properly. Found on Wackyarchives.com

Awesome Halloween Decorations - this is seriously cool!!!

Here is another one that I found on pinterest, but I couldn’t find where it originated.  If you know the originator please let me know and I can correct my pin and update this post to give proper credit for this fantastic craft.

So this is not my original idea but I just LOVED it and it was a fun project where I pulled my hair back, put on long pants, long sleeve shirt, gloves and went to work with wire cutters in hand.

What you need:

  • Chicken Wire
  • Gloves
  • Wire Cutters
  • Zip ties

FYI – I tried putting it on a dress form first to make it, but honestly it was so much easier to make it free form.  I originally wanted to make just the dress, but after I got started I went ahead and made the shoulders, neck, arms, head and a bun. :)  Once you get somewhat of a form, you can crush or expand the chicken wire to get the look that you want.

I’ve seen people do double takes when they walk by my house :)
