Halloween Kids' Craft: Make a Friendly Ghost Mum-ster
Get an assist from your little ghouls to craft this cute planter with personality.
- white potted mum (preferably with a rounded shape)
- 1 sheet of black self-adhesive craft foam
- white craft paint
- chip or foam brush
Paint mum’s pot with 1-2 coats of white craft paint, depending on desired coverage, and allow to dry.
Create Ghost’s Face
For the eyes, fold black craft foam in half (Image 1), sketch a large oval shape for the eyes onto the foam’s paper backing (Image 2). Tip: Folding the foam in half before cutting, creates 2 eyes whose shape mirrors each other. Sketch an open mouth shape onto the back of the remaining black foam; cut out (Image 3).
Remove the paper backing from the eye cut-outs and attach near the top of the planter, then add the mouth below (Image 1). Display your completed mum-ster in either a sheltered outdoor location or indoors (Image 2).
