I did not stuff the "skirt" of the ghost so that it would look flowy and more spooky. Mine stands about 6 inches tall. I also think I am going to suspend him with invisible thread above my ghost village I have here at home.
Please email me with any questions or corrections! I would love to see any finished products!!!
All comments welcome!
