Paper Plate Ghosts
by Bluebonnet Crafters
Reprint from September/October 1997 Crafty Visions Newsletter



For one ghost:

  • 1 uncoated plain paper plate 9" in diameter (the least expensive available)
  • Scissors
  • A black marker, crayon or paint
  • Pencil
  • 1 length of monofilament fishing line, upholstery carpet thread or elastic thread
  • Paper punch
  • A reinforcement
  • Glue or cellophane tape
  • Optional: Glow in the dark varnish or glitter paint, etc. to embellish


On the back of your paper plate draw a 3" circle in the center with a line from the edge of the circle out to the edge of the plate on one side only. Inside the circle use the pattern to draw the head and arms. Cut along each drawn line leaving it uncut and still attached 1 3/4" opposite the cut to the center.

Cut along the lines forming the arms. This will leave the head already cut out. Form a cone with the plate bringing the cut toward the center overlapped to form the skirt of your ghost. Anchor using glue or clear cellophane tape. Punch a hole at the top of the head and place a reinforcement around the punched hole. Tie your fishing line or thread through the hole and knot. This will be used to hang your ghost.

Using the picture as a guide draw the eyes and the mouth of your ghost with your black pen, crayon or paint.

Using the option you can decorate the skirt of the ghost with glitter, glow in the dark paint, etc. Varied sizes of ghosts can be made using circles cut from white poster board or paper plates.
