Paper Ghost Garland

Posted by  ·  October 9, 2008  ·  Last Updated: October 9, 2008

Passing some time yesterday, we made a really simple Halloween craft. We used some butcher paper, but freezer paper would be great also.  Decide how long you want your garland, then accordion fold. Draw your ghost on the top. We have a template if you like.

Paper Ghost Garland Template

Cut your ghost out making sure to not cut around the hands.

Draw faces on each ghost

It wasn’t too long before someone decided the faces should be pink!

If I can find some long orange paper we will be making pumpkins!  I think it would be funny to see all of the different faces she could come up with!

    I rarely leave a response, however i did some searching and
    wound up here Paper Ghost Garland | Skip To My Lou.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you
    usually do not mind. Is it only me or does it give the impression like a few of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would like to keep up with anything
    fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    You could certainly see your expertise in the paintings you write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. All the time follow your heart.

    Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know
    a few of the pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a
    linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

    We made these with several kids at church and they loved it. One boy made all of his ghosts different super heroes. It was very cute!

    Thanks for the idea! I did this today with my 2 year old and 5 year old. My 5 year old daughter made clothes for her ghosts!

    Excellent! Thank you so much for another great holiday activity I can do with my kids. We went boo-ing with your nifty cat mask pumpkins on Monday. The kids' excitement was palpable.
