Fold the fabric in half and drape it around your child’s head creating a hood, mark the spot where the two pieces meet under the chin. Wrap the fabric until it overlaps on either side near the armpits and mark the connections.
Sew snaps to both sides of the three spots that you marked.
Make Elbow Holes
Try the cloak on your child and mark where their elbows fall. Cut slits at each elbow mark for arm holes.
Rough It Up
Cut slits in the bottom to create a more ragged appearance. You can also make the bottom shorter if need be.
Paint the ghost’s face with white paint, leaving large holes around the eyes.
Fill in around the eyes with the black eye shadow.
Put It All Together
Dress all in black, don your ghostly cloak and haunt the night!
