Glue Ghosts

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

This Halloween, decorate your home with these spooky houseguests: googly-eyed ghosts made from white glue and string.


  • Glue
  • String or yarn
  • Waxed paper
  • Craft stick or plastic spoon
  • Googly eyes
  • Construction paper


  1. For each one, lay a length of thick string or yarn on a piece of waxed paper in a basic ghost shape, leaving the bottom open.
  2. Carefully fill the area inside the string with glue, then smooth the glue with a craft stick or the back of a plastic spoon. Add googly eyes and a construction paper mouth. Let the glue dry overnight.
  3. Remove the ghost from the waxed paper and trim any excess glue from the outline.
  4. Use a pushpin to poke a hole at the top and thread through a string for hanging.
