How to make a spooky fingerpuppet?

These little ghosts are super fun to make for kids and adults.
You can keep entertaining and silly conversations between all of your fingers or just use 'em as decoration for you home, table or as a prop in your product listings.
You can whip 'em up in no time and they make great companions so here's what you need:

Plaster of Paris, Vaseline, little bowl of water,
a permanent marker and a plastic bag to protect your table.
Cut strips of 2cm or 1inch of the Plaster of Paris.
Cut a few squares too.
Put some Vaseline on a finger.
Dip a strip of Plaster of Paris in the bowl of water.
Put a few strips on your fingers.
It will take about 10 minutes to set.
Sit still and relax.
Take off the plaster fingers.
Dip a larger square into the bowl of water.
Place it on top of the plaster finger.Put the finger on the plastic bag and drape the Plaster of Paris a bit.
Let it dry.Draw with the permanent marker eyes and a mouth.
Your ghostly companions are ready for Halloween fun!
