Paper Plate Ghost Craft

While I do think ghost crafts are cute I was dead afraid of ghost when I was a kid (thanks to the many absolutely scary ghost stores I was told by the older kids in the neighbourhood). Think it was until I saw the movie Casper and “realized” ghost can be nice too that anything ghost related would make me look like, well a ghost.

What you need;

  • 1 small and 1 big paper plate (or 2 larger ones and you trim one down)
  • scissors
  • glue
  • black marker
  • thread

Take the larger paper plate and start cutting it with scissors in a spiral manner towards the middle.

Draw spooky expression on the smaller paper plate and glue it onto the center point of the now swirly cut larger paper plate.

Attach a thread on the ghost’s head and watch it swirl!
