Casper isn't the only friendliest ghost you know...these cute and cuddly Towel Ghosts are great for decorating your home for Halloween!  You could even get the kids involved with these easy Halloween crafts!

 Towel Ghosts

Materials:

  • Towel
  • Ruler
  • Marking pen
  • Fabric-cutting scissors
  • Spoon
  • 1 sheet of paper (8 1/2" x 11")

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut away any embellishments/special stitching from both short ends of the towel.

  2. Fold the towel in half widthwise; cut along the fold to yield two smaller rectangles of the same size.

  3. On one of the rectangles, mark 3 1/2" from one short edge; repeat on the opposite short edge. These will become the arms of the ghost.

  4. Fold your 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper in half widthwise. Center the short edge of the paper in the center of the rectangle, along the same short edge where you made the marks for the ghost’s arms. Make marks at the top edge, on either side of the paper; 1" below the top edge, on either side of the paper; and the bottom of the paper, 1" away from either side of the paper.

  5. Cut out a rectangle shape from the top center edge, following the four dots you made. This will become the top of the ghost’s head. Now, connect the remaining dots you drew, curving them a bit as you go, to create the arm shapes.

  6. Cut out the arm shapes.

  7. For the eyes and mouth I wanted to have more of an oval shape than a circle shape. A common spoon will do the trick. Trace the spoon onto your paper to the handle; remove the spoon and connect the lines together. Cut the shape out.

  8. Lightly trace the oval shape on the head to create the eyes and mouth shapes. I used a pen, as it’ll let you get a little more detailed than a marker will.

  9. To cut out the eyes and mouth, simply make a slit in the center of the shape, cut out to the edge, and then cut around the shape. Make sure to cut just outside the drawn lines so the pen marks are cut away, too.

  10. To make the second ghost, lay the first ghost on top of the second rectangle shape. Trace the arms, head, eyes, and mouth, and cut out.

  11. A quick note: If you used a washable marker and can see still see some markings when you're done, simply run those edges under water to erase them. Let your ghosts air dry before hanging.
     
  12. Hang with thumbtacks, twine, or safety pins.
