Today I made a ghost. I started with a roll of wire fencing, six feet long.
(FYI, real chicken wire would be easier to work with- this was harder to bend and cut because there were so many pieces of wire.)
The roll was three feet wide, so I started by building the skirt. I cut an appropriate length, then joined the two edges together and crumpled the top.
I did the same for the torso, and joined the two pieces together.
I made one arm, then found something to help me shape the head.
I attached the head and had two pieces of wire left - enough for an arm, and the piece I cut off the head. (It's the neck in the picture above.)
I added the second arm, and then used the last piece to make hair.
And there she is.
