How to Make a Ghost Paper Finger Puppet

What you need:

  • paper
  • pens
  • scissors
  • glue

Step by Step Tutorial

Place two or three fingers on the paper and trace around them.

Draw a ghost shape around the fingers outline, leaving generous space around the outline.

Fold the paper – this way when you cut the ghost outline, you get two outlines that are the same.

Cut out the ghost outline.

Apply glue on the edge of one of the ghosts, do not apply glue on the bottom side of the ghost as the opening for the fingers will be there.

Stick the two ghost finger puppet parts together.

Draw a ghost face on one side, scary, funny or any other expression is fun.

You will need to wait until the glue has completely dried before moving to the next step. Once dry, push the puppet on your finger.

All done.
