Egg Carton Ghost Preview

We have shown you how to make our Achoo Ghosts out of tissue paper.

Here's another fun way to make some spooky Halloween ghosts to hang up. 

The ingredients are almost as simple as the other ghosts we've made. All you need is an egg carton, some tissue paper, paint and glue.

We've added some googly eyes for some added cuteness.

Halloween Craft for Kids: Egg Carton Ghost

Hang these ghosts up all over the house. They are so cute they couldn't scare anyone!

Craft Supplies:

  • Egg carton
  • Paint (white)
  • Paint brush
  • Tissue paper (white)
  • Googly eyes
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Glue
Halloween Craft for Kids Instructions

Step #1:

Cut out one shell of the egg carton. If you want to make more than one ghost, cut out one of these for each one.

Step #2:

Punch a hole in the top of the shell with your scissors. Thread through a piece of string and tie it in place.

If you want the ghost to look like it is floating, use fishing line instead!

Step #3:

Paint the entire outside of the egg carton shell with white paint. Allow to dry.

Step #4:

Add some glue all over the inside of the shell and scrunch some tissue paper inside. Be sure to press it in place so the glue holds it.

Step #5:

Trim the tissue paper to make your ghosts body.

Step #6

Add some goggly eyes for a cute ghost. If you want something more spooky you can draw your eyes on with a marker.

A fun and whimsical halloween craft for kids to make to help decorate this Halloween!
