Imitation=Flattery: Pottery Barn Knock Off - Halloween Outside Ghosts

We had a fun craft party to make these Pottery Barn Ghosts.  Usually making something yourself will save tons of money but Styrofoam balls are expensive.  Why do they cost so much?  However, we did save some money and of course had fun getting together to make them.

Pottery Barn Version

 -  Styrofoam Balls - $6-$15 (I used a 8", 6", & 4") Use Coupons!!
 -  Black Marker  - on hand (for the eyes)
 -  Cheesecloth - $3/Yd.  I used 1 yd for the 8" but less for the other 2.
 -  Eye Screw - on hand
 -  String to hang - on hand
Total - about $35 for all 3

I just used a marker for the eyes and draped the cheesecloth over it. You can double the cheesecloth if you want and also cut vertical strips.  I didn't do either of these and love how they turned out.
