What You Need: Tissues, cotton balls, a yarn or a string and a black marker.

How To Make It: Lay a tissue out flat and place a cotton ball in the middle. Close the tissue paper over the cotton in such a way that the round ball becomes the head and the tissue the rest of the ghostly body. Wrap some string around the head and leave enough string to wrap around the next ghost and so on until you have a garland of ghosts. Draw eyes and a mouth for each of your ghosts and you have yourself a string of ghosts. Like Casper, these ghosts are too cute to spook!

What You Need: Glue, glitter, baking paper and a yarn or a string

How To Make It: This uses the same process as the Gluey Ghosts.

Sprinkle some glitter onto the glue and as it starts drying up, peel it off and string it up as a decoration in the house. This makes for a sparkly web any spider would be proud to weave!

What You Need: Toilet roll tubes, black chart paper, scissors, paint and a paintbrush, googly eyes, glue and yarn or string.

How To Make It: Save those toilet roll tubes to turn into bats for another fun and easy hanging decoration. From painting the tubes to glueing on googly eyes, your family will have fun making each bat unique. Take black chart paper, wrap it around the tubes and make sure they are tightly glued together. Draw “bat wings” on the black paper and cut them out, then glue them onto the tube. Add the eyes and paint on two small teeth (you can make them white or add drops of red “blood” to them). Hang the bats up to make a spooky decoration.
