How to make leaf ghosts

I am not a big fan of all things spooky but these leaf ghosts are just so cute they could never be scary. As usual this is a very simple nature craft that is also very effective.

All you need is:

How to make:

  1. We simply gathered up some whole leaves  and laid them out to dry.
  2. We decided to go for a upside down triangle shape for our ghosts so folded back the top pars of the leaf and sellotaped them in place till we had the desired shape.
  3. Then we spray painted the leaves with white spray paint (outside and with facemasks) and left them to dry. An adult should do the spray painting or at the least closely supervise.
  4. Then we simply glued on some googly eyes and added a dark background and we were done!

Aren’t they sweet? This would make a cute bunting idea too.

    Cute! I have a 6 year old so try to veer on the cute side around Halloween…don’t want her to be traumatised. We’ve just collected lots of leaves from the park, so might give this a whirl over half term 😊 #naturallycrafty
