Rigid Wrap is a wonderful craft material, you can cover almost anything with it and it will take on the shape of
the object. For example, balloons, boxes, wire shapes,but please don’t cover the cat!
For the ghost I took a Styrofoam cone, and egg. Put a dowel in the top of the cone and stuck the egg on top.
Use whatever size cone and egg you want, large small it doesn’t matter. I took 2 pieces of dowel about 6” long and stuck them into the sides of the cone. Now read the directions on the Rigid Wrap package. Once you have read the directions cut pieces of Rigid Wrap long enough to cover the ghost from the bottom of the front, over the top to the bottom of the back, turn the ghost and keep doing this until you have at least 3 layers of Rigid Wrap all the way around the ghost. When completely dry you can remove the cone from the inside if you want, or leave it. Paint the ghost with acrylic paint of your choosing. Don’t put the water down the drain, it will clog the pipes!!
For the witch I used a Styrofoam cone, any size you want, Wire Mesh for the hat brim, Paper Mache for the
facial features. As with the ghost cover the cone with Rigid Wrap. Cut a circle out of the wire mesh for the
witches hat brim, cut an X in the middle and put it over the top of the cone, cover with Rigid Wrap, shaping as it dries. Mix a small amount of Paper Mache according to label directions and make the facial features, stick to the face, and no need for glue it will stick as it dries. Paint with acrylic paint of your choosing; tie a bow and glue to the witch.
