Materials Used

Step by Step Instructions

Draw a ghost shape on the toilet paper roll. You can draw them with or without the hands. 

For younger kids we recommend drawing one without hands as it will make the cutting way easier.

Step 1
Cut out the ghost shape using scissors.

Step 2
Paint the toilet roll using white acrylic paint. One layer will be enough, even if it doesn’t cover the paper roll’s texture. Ghosts are see through afterall!

Step 3
Paint the mouth and the eyes with black acrylic paint. Let the color dry.

Step 4

Paint two white pupils on the black eyes. This will make the ghost less scary in our opinion.

You could also paint a red tongue inside the mouth.

Step 5
All done! Easy-peasy, right?
