Bewitching Tomato Cage Ghost

Use a large tomato cage covered with a sheet to make a witch ghost

Approximate Time: 20 minutes


  • large tomato cage
  • rope light your choice of color I used green for a eerie glow

  • twin size flat white sheet
  • large round styrofoam ball
  • 3 yards of orange ribbon
  • child size witch's hat


This is a large tomato cage with a green rope light wrapped around it and secured with zip strips. I then stuck a round Styrofoam ball on top of the tomato cage for the head. I covered it with a twin size flat white sheet. Next I tied orange ribbon around the neck, painted on the eyes and mouth with a black paint pen, and added a child size witch's hat.

I am sure you could use a heavy dowel rod or two inside the cage to hold it up
