Tissue Paper Ghost
Precisely, all you need is 2 pieces of tissue paper from that Kleenex box you've got on your kitchen counter, so you won't be heading to a crafts store for this one. (Can you tell I like using tissue paper for crafting? You can even make a pompom with it!) Combine that with a piece of thread and it's done! So this is what you need:
Supplies To make tissue paper Ghosts:
- 2 paper tissues
- a string (you can make cord yourself like I did here)
- a pair of googly eyes - or a black marker
HOW TO make a Tissue Paper Ghost
1) Place a tissue on a flat surface and add another one (crumpled into a tiny ball) in the middle:
2) Tie a knot around the cotton ball to get a head-like form in the middle of the tissue paper:
4) Stick googly eyes or draw 2 black dots with a sharpie on the ghost's head.
You can make this cute (not scarry at all!) tissue paper ghost in no time. I love it because it's nearly zero cost (how much does a piece of Kleenex cost?) and because you don't need to be precise - or pay a lot of attention - and because it's so easy anyone can make it eyes closed 🙂
Make sure to save this idea to Pinterest:
