Chicken Wire Ghosts


Wire ghosts

These ghosts made out of chicken wire were one of my first discoveries on Pinterest. I messed around with chicken wire for the Dancing Ghost Bride, and it was trickier than I thought it would be. They are beautiful, ethereal, and I want to make four of them at least, using real pajarigirls for the forms. I’d love to have the whole backyard filled with non-creepy dead people in foofy dresses.

Finding the original source has been tricky, and this is as close as I’ve gotten:

Thanks to The Candy Corn Chronicles & The Modern Mourner for sharing on Pinterest– I can’t wait to explore these blogs further. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also Googled chicken wire ghosts and found another post with two tutorials for making themย  at www.bedifferentactnormal.com. Thank you!

Dancing Ghost Bride


I loved my wedding dress; it was the marriage that was the problem. So, after one of my daughters wore it to a formal, we decided it would make a great Halloween decoration.

Last year I used an upside-down tomato cage, this year I added a chicken wire bodice.

Tomato cages are the best option I’ve found for making ghosts; this time of year I am taking them off all the plants, anyway.

An old store fixture and a broken snow rake handle are the frame.

Because I didn’t want her to blow over or away while dancing in the wind, we pounded a few large stakes to hold down the fixture.

It was easier to put the dress on the form and THEN squish the wire as needed.

Tomato cages have three legs; I used two for her chest and one to hang off the frame.
