Attention - Special Notice!

My Halloween Pages are currently being rebuilt at their new home - The site is currently in development, but rest assured, it will be a significant improvement over these pages.

In addition to the web versions, most instructions will have highly detailed, downloadable PDF files that are chock full of hi-res photos and suitable for printing.

So I ask that you please be patient. I promise that it will be worth the wait. If you would like me to add you to my email list to be notified when the new site goes live, please send me an email.

Those of you who follow my pages can expect more projects, updated projects, and lots of other goodies in the future. Thanks for your understanding, and happy haunting.


Step 1:

Step 2:

Cut a length of wire and push it through the fake skull.

After inserting the wire, be sure to bend the ends over with pliers to keep anyone from being accidentally poked by the sharp ends. I even suggest that you tape the ends with electrical tape for added safety.

Step 3:

Bend the wire to form the shoulders.

Step 4:

Screw an eyelet into the top of the skull. This creates an easy way to hang the Spectre. If you made the skull using my "Cheap Skulls" method, you can even cover the eyelet with hot glue so that it is ultra-secure.

Step 5:

Drape the cheese Cloth over the frame and your Spectre is finished!

Here's an example of a completed spectre. For this one, I used a cheap , blow-molded skull from Wal-Mart. I think it's pretty creepy the way it is, but it's even creepier under blacklight.

Just another shot of a Spectre in regular light. This one was hung in front of our library window.

And here's how it looked from outside once the blacklight was turned on!
