9. Scary Drapery

To create the ghostly drapery project, you need anything else but cheesecloth. This one element can give your entire house and haunted environment. If you are into spooky décor, this is something that you should consider. To get the aged effect on the cheesecloth, boil some water and soak the cut pieces of cheesecloths and add a couple of bag teas. Let it rest in the bucket overnight, take it out the next day, drape in on the door or fence or banister, and let it dry. Once it is dried off completely, you can hang it on your front porch.
