How to make ghostly chairs
We started with the simplest idea: dress up the ghost chairs. How? We explain it to you You will need to:
- A pillow case
- black cloth
- Glue for fabrics or silicone
The step-by-step process
- The first thing to do is cut two large ovals of black fabric for the eyes. You can make them in the shape and size that you like. The bigger and less uniform the better. Remember that it is a ghost, so you do not have to be perfect and beautiful.
- Once cut, what you have to do is stick them on the pillowcase, on the side that is not open. That is, close to the seam on the narrowest side. Glue them at a distance of one foot from the seam down. Let them dry well, whether you have done with silicone or if it is permanent glue.
- Once it's dry, open the side seams of the cover up and insert it into the backrest of the chair. Remember that the eyes should be facing outwards, that is to say in the part where the back is not going to be supported.
