This ghost project was essentially free because I made it with items already at home. These ghosts would be ideal as indoor decorations. However, if you want to use them as decorations outside your home - I would recommend decorating on Halloween night because the cold air or mist won't do well with tissue paper.

Total Time: 5-15 minutes per ghost

Yield: As many as you would like!


  • tissue paper
  • newspaper inserts
  • black Sharpie
  • rubberbands
  • balloon ribbon or any narrow ribbon


  1. You can use any old newspaper or ad circular inserts that you're going to toss out anyway for this project! Crumble the papers into a ball to make the head of the ghost.

  3. Using tissue paper (during the holidays, when I make purchases I will ask for complimentary tissue paper and gift boxes) wrap the ball of paper with the tissue paper. Using rubber band or ribbon and tie the head to form a ghost.
  4. Using a Sharpie, decorate your ghosts! Then wrap ribbon around the head in a knot and ready to hang as decor.
