Evolon Ghosts for Halloween

We made this decorative mobile using a couple of wire coathangers, some invisible thread and half a dozen cheeky little ghosts made from Evolon.

(Evolon, is a white non woven fabric, which has a suede like texture. It is easy to cut and handles like thick paper, it also does not tear or fray – samples are available on request.)

Two little white ghosts with googley eyes either side a jar of Glow in the Dark paint. A cardboard template, small pair of scissors with red handles, a pencil and a sheet of stick on eyes are in the foreground.
Evolon is frightfully good for making ghosts!

After making a cardboard template, we drew and cut two pieces of Evolon per ghost and machine stitched them together, leaving the bottom section open. A small amount of wadding was then pushed inside to give each ghost a lovely padded, three-dimensional shape.

We thought it would be fun if the ghosts glowed in the dark, so we painted them with luminous paint, before adding some googley eyes and drawing on eyebrows, mouths and fingers with a black biro.
