Domestifluff - Food.Craft.Etc


  • I'm Kristen, a clumsy but determined home cook and crafter living in the Boston area with my husband, B, and I have an interest in all things food and craft.

    This blog was created to keep track of my various projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity.

Halloween Tissue Paper Ghosts

This craft is part of the 13 Days of Halloween project. Download number templates for the project, as well as the bug template for Day 3, in the tips and supplies post. Links to all of the crafts from this project can be found in the main 13 Days of Halloween post.

This craft started as a tissue paper dahlia (you can find the original craft and template at Martha Stewart Weddings), but turn it upside down and you have a ghost! I scaled the original template to 65% to make the ghost, and though I can’t include that template here for copyright reasons (don’t want Martha and her people coming after me!), I have included a quarter circle template at the same size that you can download below. If you have pinking shears or decorative edging scissors, you can use those to create an interesting edge on the circle for your own ghost.

How to Make a Tissue Paper Ghost

Supplies Needed

tissue paper ghost template (154Kb PDF)

a printer and printer paper

silver or white tissue paper

a pencil

craft scissors

1/8″ black grosgrain or satin ribbon

a pom pom, cotton ball, lollipop, or candy for the head

1/8″ hole punch


1. Download the tissue paper ghost template and print onto a sheet of regular printer paper. Cut out the template, and lay it on top of tissue paper (two sheets) that’s been folded into quarters. Line up the straight edges of the template with the corner of the paper, trace with a pencil, and cut the shape from the tissue paper.

2. Unfold the tissue paper, and insert a pom pom or cotton ball into the center. You can also use a piece of candy or a lollipop if you’d like the ghost to double as a Halloween treat.

3. Wrap the tissue paper around the pom pom (or whatever you’re using for the head), and tie with a piece of 1/8″ ribbon.

4. Punch two holes into the top of the calendar number, and secure the number to the ghost with the ribbon.
