Paper Towel Ghosts
October 22nd, 2010 by Craftylocks

I am very excited by these little ghosties – super quick to toss together using art materials found in the kitchen cupboards.

I first saw a similar craft at Learn Create Love, they went a little further and used paint to make the paper towel ghosts stiff. But I am always looking for the easiest way to do paper crafts for children so I did a bit of adapting to the process, and I think they still look great! paper-towel_ghost5

You just need some paper towels, string, twist ties, a marker pen and some scissors.

Carefully poke a couple of holes in the center of the paper towel and push a twist tie through it. This will become the top of the head.

Bunch up another paper towel and put it in the center of the other towel and close the first paper towel over it and tie it at the base with the string.

Add some ghostly eyes and mouth and hang them about the house in time for Halloween.
