Paper Roll Ghost Family

This simple Halloween craft is great for the entire family to do together. Using just paper rolls and white paint, you can create a ghost family that will look great on the mantel this Halloween.

Materials you'll need

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    You will need a paper roll for each member of the family. Cut the rolls if you want them to be different lengths. (Grownups may need to help do this step for very young kids.)

  • Step 2

    Next, start painting the rolls white. Using an empty bottle to hold the roll during the painting step comes in very handy.

  • Step 3

    When the rolls are completely dry, you can add special touches to create each member of the family. This was a lot of fun and got a few laughs as we named each ghost. I think it would be fun to make some for extended family too.
