Looking for a last-minute Halloween craft to do with your kids? These paper towel ghosts are perfect for all ages. I actually remember making them with my sister from the age of 3 up to when I was about 15 years old. They’re fun for everyone because they’re really easy and made using items you’re guaranteed to already have at home. Kids get to show their creativity by giving the little ghosts different facial expressions. I remember breaking the colors out and making vampire ghosts, Frankenstein ghosts and werewolf-themed ghosts.
You’ll need paper towels, cotton balls, a permanent marker and string.
Tie off the head with a piece of string.
Use the permanent marker to give the ghost a face.
Give the ghosts a haunt! Tape them around the house. We put ours up above the kitchen window.
These little ghosts make an excellent part of a last-minute Halloween display with some dollar store garland or a quick banner made from orange construction paper. We often set them around the pumpkins on the mantle throughout October until the pumpkins get carved right before Halloween. They also make a fun display with some tin can luminaries.
