-cheesecloth or gauze
-detergent bottles, juice bottles, or 1/2 gal. plastic milk bottles
Top bottle with ball of foil to create the head of the ghost. Twist a sturdy "snake" of tinfoil once around the bottle to create the effect of arms. If necessary, tape in place. Cut a length of gauze to fit over bottle, just enough to slightly drag on ground. Dip gauze into the starch. Squeeze out gently making sure it is very saturated, but not drippy. Drape gauze over bottle and adjust edges and wrinkles as you desire. Let dry overnight. Once dry, lift the ghost off the bottle and let it stand on its own.
