This countdown to Halloween post starts with a spookily cute ghost paper garland. If your joining me for the ride I’ll be adding a new ghoulish craft every day until my favourite twenty one tutorials are loaded. I really love all the horror that the last day of October conjures but I can’t help but 100% fall for cute ghosts, goofy vampires and monsters that are adorable.
1. Ghost paper garland with free printable.
Ghosts are really spooky, I definitely don’t want to see one – thank you very much! It’s weird though because my absolute instinct when it comes to a craft ghost is to make them kind of funny and cuddly. These little spooks are just fooling around, having a giggle and frightening not a soul. I’ve made a free printable of this ghost paper garland that you can cut out to use as a template or stick to a piece of string and use as is.
2. Halloween scary face paper lanterns with free printable.
I was kind of going with cute scary face lanterns with this one. I’m not sure they are as cute as I was hoping but am delighted with the result. My kitchen looked absolutely haunted and had a delicious colourful glow when I put down the lights. These are easy to make and you can draw your own designs and make a bunch of them in five minutes. If you are looking for the effects without the effort there is a free printable of these three designs. All you need to do is take some coloured paper. I used Yellow, Orange and Pink. Draw a spooky face with black pen then using tape bend the paper into a tube and stick. it’s really nice to chop some shapes and spikes into the top to finish them off. Put some tea lights inside and switch off the main lights….Spooky!
