How To Make Flying Ghost For Halloween:
Gather the flying ghost decoration supplies and head to a space where you can spread out.
Start making flying ghosts Halloween decorations by cutting out squares from an old 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 still 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 ghost decorations with your dark colored marker. To add an extra element of spookiness we drew open-mouth ghost faces like they are moaning.
Cut out a long piece of your string to hang your ghosts from.
Next, we 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!

Thank you for sharing this Rachel! My grandson is autistic and loves to make holiday crafts but gets frustrated if they are too complicated. This is perfect for him and I know he’ll have so much fun making this ghost garland to help decorate for Halloween.
