Making a Paper Plate Ghost

These paper plate ghosts are easy to make with your kids and are a quick craft for Halloween.



  • 2-3 white paper plates
  • white tissue paper
  • white string or yarn
  • scissors
  • glue or tape
  • Sharpie marker
  • pencil


  1. Using a pencil, draw eyes and a mouth onto one of the plates.
  2. Trace the face with a black marker. Then color it in.
  3. Trace your child's hands onto the center of a plate (use two plates if necessary). NOTE: You could use construction paper instead.
  4. Cut out the hands and attach them to the back of the ghost plate.
  5. Fold the tissue paper over a few times, then cut it into strips about 1-2 inches wide.
  6. Attach the strips of tissue paper to the back of the ghost plate, so that they hang down from the bottom.
  7. Punch a hole in the top of the ghost and thread a piece of string or yarn through the hole to hang it.
