Create this easy floating ghost to decorate a window for Halloween. Why not create a whole family of ghosts to make a haunted house?

Time: 10 minutes
Age: Any age
Level: Easy

Materials
Translucent paper (e.g. tracing paper or baking paper)
Sticky back contact paper (book covering)
Scissors



freezer paper, translucent paper, ghost baking paper, ghost tracing paper, making a ghost out of paper
We used baking paper


Method
Tear a ghost shape out of the paper. Tearing the paper instead of cutting with scissors gives a nice fuzzy edge to the ghost.

Tear eyes and a mouth out of the ghost shape. Younger children will find it easier to draw a face on with a black pen instead.

Peel the backing paper off the sticky contact paper and stick your ghost onto the sticky side.

Cut around the ghost leaving a sticky border of about half a centimetre.

Ready to affix to window


Stick the ghost on to a window. The sticky plastic border around the ghost is the part that will stick to the window.
