How to Make Ghost Leaves Craft for Halloween

Still have a little more decorating to do for Halloween tonight? Try this simple, easy craft that will surely put your house in a ghostly mood! Here's what you'll need:
  • Craft leaves (I found mine at the dollar store)
  • White acrylic paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Black permanent marker (Fine tip)
  • For a Garland: White yarn or string, tape or glue
  • For a poster: Black construction paper and tape

Step 1. Paint the leaves. Do TWO coats. Tip: Make sure you allow the first coat to dry completely before putting on the second coat or the paint will just smear.
 Step 2. Allow the pain to dry and then draw ghost faces on them.  
For the Garland: Cut out a piece of yarn and tape or glue each leaf on the back 2 inches apart. Hang this in a hallway or around your door!
 For the Poster: Glue four ghost leaves onto a sheet a black construction paper. Tip: Don't place them straight up and down, rather place them in different directions as if they are flying. Use the remaining paint from your brush to write a phrase and paint movement lines. Kids can hang it on their door to welcome guests! Spook-tacular!!
