How to Make Ghosts in a Jar for Halloween (PHOTOS)

We are spooking things up this month with ghosts in a jar! This craft seems like just the type of easy Halloween-inspired home decor that I might enjoy!

The idea is to glue a floating ghost on the inner lid of a mason jar using hot glue, a wooden spool, a wooden knob, and a lollipop stick. Place a square of cheesecloth in liquid starch and then drape it over your ghost shape.

When you screw the lid into place and turn the jar upside down, you will have what appears to be a mini ghost terrarium.

Watch the video as I complete this craft and decide whether or not the ghosts in a jar were a Pinterest win or a Pinterest fail for me:
