Printable Follow-Me-Eyes Ghost DIY Paper Craft


I’ll admit it, I didn’t start decorating for Halloween until this last weekend. Sometimes life, and the forgetful brain, get in the way. I had that “Oh No” moment when I walked into a store and saw their Halloween display towering down at me with laughing animatronics, creepy ghosts, and nasty spiders. Oh the eight-;egged creatures of doom, those are never allowed in my Halloween display. nope nope nope.

On the plus side, I didn’t have the Halloween brain fart last until Oct 30 where I could have been scurrying around in a desperate need to find trick or treat candy and some pull-together costume made from pop cans and a green cardboard box (recycling hahahaha). I have time to be a little creative with the family. So what did I do? Well I sought shelter in my Photoshop program and immediately began to create DIY decorations.

This year I am going simplistically cute with a small factor of creepy with my fun #FollowMeEyes creations. This time, instead of being Cubeecrafts with the Cubee-Follow-Me-Eyes, the printable Halloween Decoration is a Ghost Puppet.

These Ghost puppets can go almost anywhere.

  • Display them on a shelf so when people walk by they are watched
  • Cut the ghosts off their bases and hang them on the wall
  • place them on festive tables for that added touch of cute creepiness
  • Or whatever you find fun and decorative
  • The Ghost Puppet/Decoration is pretty simple to create and will be fun for the whole family. Simply follow the instructions below. Be sure adults do all the cutting.

    Instructions:

    1. Print on cardstock
    2. Cut out the ghost along the outer solid line, be sure not to detach from base.
    3. Wrap the base around to form a circle and glue together.
      The circle should form behind the ghost.

    4. EYES:
      • cut out the desired eye rectangle along the outer boarder.
      • fold on the lines closest to the eyes. It should partly cover the eyes
      • Fold on the next line outward so that it forms a zigzag. (see image for help)
      • Glue each tab to either side of the eyes behind the ghost
      • Trim the excess
    5. Display Ghost and Enjoy
