What You'll Need:
  • Paper towels for an indoor decoration or cut out squares from a white trash bag for an outdoor decoration (2 per ghost)
    (Alternately, you can use 2 squares of material.)
  • String of some sort (string, twine, yarn, thread, etc.)
    (We only had regular twine, so that's what we used.)
  • Scissors (or anything that will cut what you are using for the string)
  • Black marker or pen
  1. Scrunch up one of the paper towels or pieces of plastic into a ball. (This will be used to form the "head" of the ghost.)
  2. Place the balled-up paper towel or plastic in the center of a 2nd paper towel or plastic lying flat on a surface.
  3. Cut a length of string (enough length to tie around the paper towel/plastic and for the length you'll need to hang up the ghost).
  4. Wrap the flat paper towel or plastic around the balled-up paper towel or plastic and tie the string around the ghost's "head," knotting the string. Cut off any excess from that end of the string, leaving a length of string for hanging. (Alternately, you can tie off the knot around the head and then cut off all excess and use string or needle and thread to poke a hole through the top of the ghost, and hang that way.)
  5. Use the marker or pen to make a face on the ghost. Use a permanent marker for an outside plastic ghost.
  6. Then, hang up the ghost wherever desired.
Remember always to supervise young children around scissors and other sharp crafting objects.
