felt-ghostsFelt is one of my favorite mediums to work with, and these Halloween felt ghosts are adorable and fun to make with the kids. They’re also incredibly inexpensive! Use them as Halloween decorations or ornaments.

Here’s how to make your own Halloween felt ghosts.

Halloween Felt Ghosts

What you need:

  • One or two sheets of white felt and one sheet of black felt. These usually run less than $1 each at craft stores.
  • Black embroidery thread
  • 1 embroidery needle
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Stuffing

How to make:

  • Draw the shape of your first ghost onto a white felt sheet with pencil
  • Fold the sheet in half so the you can cut two of the exact same ghosts shapes out at the same time
