Pop can and bed spring ghost

oddieOctober 5, 2007

wanted to share with you something my grandson and I made yesterday, hes always wanting to make something when hes here has seen some cute snowman made with pop cans so thought we would try a ghost, could only find one can so made mine from the bed spring, I told him I would let him know what you all think of his crafting, hes 8 years old and such a joy to craft with.

Thanks everyone you made his day! I called and told him he had some post about his ghost, he made his mom get on the coumputer and read them himself before I could get off the phone.
Janied, I just used rough sandpaper then wipe them down with alcohol, most likey you wont get all the rust off, but spray paint covers pretty good.
Happy Crafting

Did you paint the pop can? or cover it with something? so it's logo and other words don't show through the cheese cloth?

I think my grandkids would enjoy it too.

Havent seen a ghost yet so guess that part is my idea.
pattico we sprayed the can white, used frabic stiffner after we put him together, but didnt need it looked good without it,.
Last year we made the floating ghost useing a large styrofoam ball and cheesecloth, frabic stiffner, and hung with fishing line, dont have a photo but they were cute.
Thanks agine looks like we have a up and comming crafter, he wants to know whats next!
Happy crafting
