Ghostly goings on (in Evolon)
A couple of years ago we made a mobile for Halloween and decorated it with six little Evolon ghosts (about 4 to 5 inches high).
The crescent moon was also made from Evolon, but coloured using yellow transfer paint. Finally, to complete our night sky scene, we added a smattering of golden stars (made from transfer painted Lutradur).
After making a cardboard template, we cut out two pieces of Evolon per ghost and machine stitched them together, leaving the bottom section open. A small amount of wadding was then placed 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 using a black biro to draw on their eyebrows, mouths and fingers.
With the help of some invisible thread and a couple of old wire coathangers our mobile was soon complete and ready to hang!
