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).

Two little white ghosts with googley eyes either side of a jar of Glow in the Dark Paint. A cardboard ghost 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 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.

A single ghost against a dark grey and black background, showing the single line of white machine stitching used to join the front and back pieces together.

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!
