What’s Halloween without a good ghost story – or a few spooky ghost crafts? Actually, our ghost crafts are more sweet than scary, and most would be fun for little helpers, too. The Bouncing Ghost and Paper Clay Ghost Trio are especially easy crafts for kids. All of the photos link to the project instructions on www.styrofoamcrafts.com, so page down and have a hauntingly good time! (Today’s Halloween crafts were designed by the very talented Kathleen George.)
(And, don’t miss your chance to vote for your favorite pumpkin craft.)
The kids can help roll out and shape the paper clay for our Paper Clay Ghost Trio.
This sweet Masked Ghost is ready for trick-or-treat.
Hang our Ghostly Windsock on the porch and watch the fabric strips flutter in the breeze.
Adorable Trick-or-Treat Centerpiece is made with fabric stiffened with white craft glue.
This Bouncing Ghost dangles on an elastic string. It's an easy, no-mess craft for kids -- the only paint is a small dab used for the mouth. The eerie arms are cut from a thin, foam sheet.
Remember dip 'n drape cheesecloth ghosts? The Eerie, Cheery Ghostly Trio is made using a similar technique.
