Tissue paper ghosts for halloween!

These tissue paper ghosts are an inexpensive and easy project for you and your little one to make for Halloween. 

Supplies you will need:

2 facial tissues (white)

Yarn or ribbon (white, black, or orange)

Black permanent marker



1.Ball up one facial tissue or a piece of paper and place it in the center of the second piece of tissue. 

2.Wrap the second piece of tissue around the ball of tissue and gently tie it closed with the yarn or ribbon, making a bow.

3.Draw a face. Be creative!

No facial tissue in the a pinch you can substitute the facial tissues with paper towels, gifting tissue, or a white wash cloth.

Make spooky decorations......  Make several tissue paper ghosts and string them together with fishing line and hang them high.

Make your ghost fly......Tie fishing line to the yarn around its neck. Hang from a ceiling fan blade and turn the fan on low.
