Ghostly goings on . . .
Here at Spunart, we’ve been busy making a mobile for Halloween using a pair of wire coat hangers for the frame.
We began by designing a cardboard template and cutting out two pieces of Evolon per ghost, which we machine stitched together leaving the bottom section completely open. A small amount of wadding was then put inside each one to give them a lovely soft padded shape.
We thought it would be rather fun if our ghosts glowed in the dark, so we painted them with luminous paint, before using a black biro to draw on their eyebrows and fingers. Finally, we gave them some self-adhesive wiggley eyes so they could all see!
The crescent moon was also made out of Evolon, but coloured using yellow transfer paint and the stars were made from transfer painted Lutradur.
Finally, we attached the ghosts, moon and stars to our coathanger frame using invisible thread.
