Materials Needed for the Puffy Cotton Ball Ghosts

  • A ghost template you have drawn
  • White cardstock
  • Black cardstock (used for the ghost’s eyes and mouth)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Cotton balls

How to Make the Puffy Cotton Ball Ghosts

Using your ghost template, trace the ghostly shape onto the white cardstock with a pencil. Do this multiple times for multiple ghosts and then cut-out the shape with your scissors.

Use the black cardstock to cut-out a big mouth and smaller eyes.

From the top of the ghost squirt-out onto it a small bit of glue. Take a cotton ball and stretch it out so it is thin and flat–tearing it into smaller pieces if needed. Lightly press this cotton onto the glue, continuing down the shape. Fill-in the spaces around the edges as is necessary.

Once the ghost has been covered in cotton you can apply some more glue to then put-down the eyes and mouth, which you will need to lightly press onto the ghost shape to be sure they are completely attached.
