Paper plate halloween ghost craft for kids

Can you believe that we are almost half way through August? it feels like only a blink ago that we were celebrating Christmas and now we have our sights set on one of our favourite times of year; Halloween! Halloween is always so much fun and we just love to decorate the house ready for trick or treaters to pay a visit. We had a great time making these little paper plate Halloween ghosts and cant wait to hang them up in our conservatory when October hits!

Here’s what we used

  • Paper plate
  • White card
  • Black paper
  • White crepe paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make our paper plate Halloween ghosts

Take the paper plate and cut a wavy line around 2cm from the bottom.

Cut out two mitten shaped hands from the card and glue one on either side of the ghost’s paper plate body.

Cut out two large eyes and a mouth then glue it onto the ghost.

Paper plate halloween ghost craft for kids

Cut out several long strands of white crepe paper and glue them onto the back of the paper plate along the wavy edge. Optionally add some string for hanging and the paper plate ghost is finished!
