Paper cup ghosts with glowing noses

We’ve been obsessed with Halloween characters with glowing noses this Halloween. We’ve created witches and Jack’O’Lanterns so far and plan on making some more. While the first ones need painting and gluing, our paper cup ghosts can be ready in literally five minutes.

They are easy to make and you can use them as Halloween decorations. You can place them in front of your house the Halloween night. This is what we will do with ours, for sure. (unless it rains – which will be a bummer)

If you are a teacher, you can make them with your students. It will be nice to have your classroom decorated with silly, scary or funny looking ghosts.

We plan on adding Frankenstein and vampires to our Halloween craft collection. So come back to see those, too.

Supplies:

Ghost faces

Start by drawing eyes and mouths on white paper cups. You can make your ghosts look scary, silly or funny. Don’t draw the eyes too close to the mouth. Leave some room for the nose.

Ghost nose

Use a pencil to poke a little hole right between the eyes and the mouth, in the middle of the paper plate.

Tea light nose

Slide a flameless tea light through the hole, from the inside the paper cup.

I told you it’s super easy. Now you can turn the candle on and enjoy your cute paper cup ghost decoration! If you don’t have paper cups at hand, you can replace them with paper rolls.
