Mrs Fox's Halloween Tissue Ghosts - Whoooooooooooo! | My Baba

If you fancy adding to your homemade Halloween decorations, how about getting your little ones to make some ghosts? They are incredibly simple to make and are mess free!

All you need for these are:

  • tissue paper
  • a pen (or paint)
  • some white cotton

I won’t do steps as this is as easy as eating a chocolate croissant while sipping a nice mug of hot, but not too hot, coffee.

Screw up a small ball of tissue paper or newspaper to the size of a golfball and pop it into the middle of a sheet of kitchen roll.  Wrap the sheet over the ball letting the corners hang loose.  Tie the cotton, not too tightly, around under the ball to hold it all in place leaving a length with which to hang it.  Draw on a mouth and some eyes and you have a ghost.

** You can, if doing this without kids, use a needle and thread and sew the thread through the middle of the kitchen roll sheet (so that it comes out of the ghosts head) making it easier to hang them straight.

*** If you want to make ghosts that you can use year after year, you can also use squares of white fabric rather than kitchen roll.
