Crafty Tuesday - Halloween 4

Here we are again...another Halloween craft that shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to complete. Unless, of course, your kids want to sit at the table for longer than that! ;) We used stuff that we've got lying around or can be bought at the supermarket.

We're still on our ghost theme because that's what my two have decided they want to dress up as for guising this year. Need to go and check and see if I have any old white sheets that are ready for decluttering...

FLYING GHOSTS

You'll need:
  • plastic or paper cups
  • sticky tape
  • kitchenroll/white cloth or white paper
  • string/thread or ribbon
  • pen or paint
  • plasticine (to help when making holes)





Take your paper cup and make a small hole in the bottom. The safest way is to take a lump of plasticine, put your cup on top and push through using a pair of scissors or screwdriver (or chopstick, if it's a papercup).









Turn the cup upside down. Cut a long piece of string. Take one or two sheets of kitchen roll and place those on top of the cup. If you're using two sheets, make sure the corners don't match for the best effect. Push the string through the kitchen roll and through the hole in the cup. Fix inside with a piece of sticky tape.

Draw on a couple of eyes and your ghost is ready for takeoff ;)







DS9 also wanted to share his very own Halloween idea with you...a 3-D picture. Cut out spooky shapes and colour them in. Fold small pieces of paper like a concertina/fan and use these to stick your shapes on to your background paper.

Happy Halloween!
