This cute ghost mobile is certain to attract a great deal of attention at your next Halloween party.

The more, the better.
With FIMO soft, it‘s easy to make your own Halloween window decorations!
Make a ghost for the mobile using the indicated quantity of nightglow FIMO effect (8020-04). To do so, you need to shape 4 strips of FIMO to a ball fi rst and then use the acrylic roller to roll it out to an approx. 3 mm thick sheet.
Next, cut the circle template out and place it on the sheet of FIMO. Cut around the outside using the kitchen knife.
Bend to join the edges of the 3/4 circle together and smooth over the seam.
Extend the bottom edge of the ghost and shape the robe.
Then form dynamic-looking ripples so that it looks as if the ghost is wearing fl owing robes.
To make the hands, shape a ball and cut it in half. Mould into two skittle-shaped pieces and flatten at one end. Use the modelling stick to create three fingers on each.
Then, finish shaping the fingers, press firmly onto the body of the ghost and smooth over the joins.
Use a a bead piercing needle to make a hole in the head. Repeat this procedure to create lots of different ghosts and then harden in the oven for 30 minutes at 110°C.
Once the figures have cooled down, you can draw various funny or scary faces on them.
Finally, tie nylon thread to small bits of the toothpicks and thread through the hole in the ghost‘s head. Tie the ghosts to a branch – and, voilà, your ghost mobile is ready for your Halloween party!
