Ghost Greeters

Ghost Greeters craft

Greet your trick-or-treaters or Halloween party guests with a group of ghastly ghosts, poised with pumpkins for an eerie entrance.

  • 1.

    Use Crayola® Scissors to cut the closed bottoms off of at least five white paper lunch bags.

  • 2.

    Cut lengths of string or yarn that are quite a bit longer than the bags. Place one string inside each bag, with string extending out both ends. Use a shorter length of string to wrap the top of the bag closed, pinching the first string inside. Tie the wrapping string tightly, then gently crumple the bag. Turn the bag inside out, revealing the hanging string, which comes out of the ghost's head. Use string to tie off a neckline, creating a round head.

  • 3.

    Flatten the bottom section of each ghost's body, and cut arm flaps in the sides.

  • 4.

    Use Crayola Markers to decorate your ghosts and give them facial features. Cover your craft area with newspaper. Blend colors with a spritz of water if you wish for an even more ghostly effect. Air-dry the ghosts.

  • 5.

    Use the strings attached to your ghosts to tie them together in a garland. Add more string to the last ghost so you can attach your garland to the doorway.

  • 6.

    Cut pumpkins and vines from construction paper. Decorate with markers. Attach them to the strings with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the glue.

  • 7.

    Hang your Ghost Greeters at the top of a door for maximum frightening fun.
