Halloween Craft: Paper Ghost Garlands

By Cindy Hopper

Looking for a simple and inexpensive way to decorate your home for Halloween? Let your little ones make these cute paper ghost garlands.

All you need is some butcher paper or  freezer paper —any paper you can have a long length.  Decide how long you want your garland, then accordion fold. Draw your ghost on the top. We have a template if you like.

Paper Ghost Garland Template

Cut your ghost out making sure to not cut around the hands.

Draw faces on each ghost.

It wasn’t too long before someone decided the faces should be pink!

If you can find some long orange paper, pumpkins would be festive!  I think it would be funny to see all of the different faces kids could come up with!

See? Easy-peasy-lemon-squeasy!
