How To Make Flying Ghosts Halloween Decoration
Materials Needed for your Flying Ghost Garland:
- Old White Sheet (old white t-shirts or trash bags will work too)
- Newspaper or white printer paper
- Dark colored marker
How To Make Flying Ghosts Halloween Decorations:
Grab your supplies and head to a space where you can spread out. Start making flying ghosts Halloween decoration by cutting out squares from your white sheet. They do not have to be exactly all the same size so no need to measure (unless you just want to). Ours were about 10 inches tall once folded over so 20 inch squares. You can make really big ghosts or medium size ghosts. This is definitely a craft where you decide on what you want to do…lots of options!
Go ahead and cut up a few small pieces of string to have those ready for your ghosts. If your child is good with scissors, let them do this part.
If they haven’t mastered scissor skills yet, they can stilll help draw faces on the ghosts!
Once the squares are cut out, take a piece of your paper and gently wad it up. Place under a sheet square and tie up with a small piece of string.
Draw faces on your ghosts with your dark colored marker and cut out a long piece of your string to hang your ghosts from.
We just grabbed some packing tape and taped each ghost to our string.
Lastly, find a spot outside to hang your ghosts! My daughter wanted to place ours on some of our bushes!
