This craft was inspired by my uncle and his family. A bunch of years ago, they cut up an old bedsheet to make ghosts to hang in the trees around their property. It looked so cool! So I decided to do a paper towel ghost craft with Lorelai this morning. It’s very easy!
Paint a paper towel white. Or you could probably use a glue/water (more glue than water) concoction. OR, you could just skip this step altogether. I wanted our ghost to dry a little stiff, though.
The first towel got saturated, but the others were only semi-painted, so they will still be able to sway in the breeze.
Roll up a bit of toilet paper to make the head.
Place it under the paper towel and lift, scrunch, and then tie a piece of thread to secure the head.
I let Lore paint on the faces when they were semi-dry. I keep forgetting to pick up black paint, so brown had to do.
Once they dry completely, I’m going to string them onto a piece of thread (stick the needle straight through the noggin) and hang them up on the patio. It’s covered, so no rain will hit these little guys. =)
