Tissue Paper Ghosts

Yep, this craft looks a lot like the one from two weeks ago (lollypop ghosts), but I swear, it’s not. All this just goes to show that a few pieces of Kleenex makes a dang good ghost, right? 

Anyway, these little guys are even easier than the lollypop ghost, if I do say so myself. My 3 year old was able to make them by himself (okay, I tied the ribbon) and is actually responsible for the one on the far left of the header photo.

These guys have to be one of the cheapest crafts I’ve ever made. They are literally three pieces of tissue, a short piece of ribbon, and a black marker. That’s it. And you can make one in under five minutes. These would go great on a garland, or hanging from a doorway (that’s what we did. Everytime my son passes under, he says “spooky” in his best ghost voice, and that’s definitely worth a few sheets of Kleenex :)).

Start with laying two sheets of tissue flat.

Ball up a third tissue and place it in the center of the flattened tissues.

Then, gather the flattened tissues around the balled-up one to make a head.

Tie the neck off with a ribbon or piece of yarn, then use the marker to make eyes and a mouth. Spooky!
