Here’s What You Need
Here’s your supply list (This post contains affiliate links to the products mentioned. Read my disclosure policy for more information):
- Free Ghost Printable <— Get it Here!
- black construction paper
- white paper
- glue sticks
- black marker
Step 1: Download and Print the Free Ghost Craft Template
Download the Free Ghost Printable. You will be stapling the template to sheets of colored paper to cut out the shapes.
Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Ghost Craft Shapes
Once you have the print outs, staple them to white paper and cut out the number and sizes of ghosts that you need.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.
Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left.
Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!
Step 3: How to Assemble
The kids will just need to glue it all together and make it their own!
- Start with a piece of black construction paper
- Choose which ghosts you want to include in your scene
- Arrange and then glue the ghosts in place
- Use a marker to personalize your ghosts with a face.
- Don’t forget to put your name on the back.
And you’re finished!
This is a great craft for Fall and Halloween Parties. And it’s easy enough for preschool, elementary, Scouts or just a fun craft at home idea.
