Tissue Paper Ghosts

Tissue Paper Ghosts
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Students can create spooky ghosts using tissue paper, markers and elastic bands.

By Andrea Mulder-Slater

What You Need:

  • white tissue paper
  • magic markers
  • elastic bands
  • yarn or twist ties
  • a few sticks (optional).

What You Do:

Gather your materials.

Take a sheet of tissue paper and crumple it up into a small ball.

Take another sheet of tissue paper and wrap and tie it around the bunched up paper (using an elastic band or twist tie), to create a ghostly head.

Now, draw some scary eyes and maybe a mouth too, on the tissue paper.

You are ready to present your ghost to the ghoul of your choice!

Optional: You can make a “ghost on a stick” by placing a stick into the bunched up paper or, tie some clear fishing line to your ghost and hang it from the ceiling for decoration.

Tip: You can use facial tissue instead of tissue paper to make your ghosts.
