Coffee Filter Ghosts

Easy Halloween Crafts for kids - Coffee filter ghost.  Make one.  Decorate and use as decorations for Halloween.  Printable for Witches Hats can be found at ActivitiesForKids.com
Make one – make several. This super easy Halloween craft for kids is very inexpensive and easy to do with a group. The Coffee Filter Ghost only takes 1/2 of a coffee filter, markers and a bit of scotch tape. I’ve embellished these little ghosts with some silver glitter glue and positioned over a small battery operated candle (though it is difficult to see this in the photos)
MATERIALS:
  • Coffee filter – 1/2 per ghost
  • Scissors
  • Black marker
  • Scotch tape
  • White printer paper
  • Ghost template
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Print out and then cut out the Ghost template – cutting on the black lines.
  2. Cut a coffee filter in half.
  3. Trace the ghost template on to the coffee filter and cut out. Note: The white paper template can also be used to make another ghost.
  4. Decorate the face of the ghost with a black marker.
  5. Curl the semi-circle and tape the two flat sides together to form a cone shaped ghost.
  6. Set on a table on top of a mini-battery operated candle or thread with fishing line and hang from the cieling.
