What you'll need:
  • Plain white lid (from a margarine container, for example)
  • 3 black construction paper circles for eyes and mouth
  • 2 sheer white plastic grocery sacks
  • 2 white pipe cleaners
  • Scotch tape
  • Glue stick
  • Black yarn
  • Hole punch
How to make it:
  1. Glue eyes and mouth on front of lid.
  2. Cut off any writing, graphics and handles from grocery sacks. Lay them on a flat surface. With scissors, shred 2" strips up sacks leaving at least a 1" area intact next to the seam.
  3. Glue the pipe cleaner/chenille stem into the seam.
  4. Turn lid over onto a flat surface. Bend and insert the pipe cleaner/seam into the ridge around the bottom half of the lid. Tape to secure in place.
  5. Repeat with the second sack and pipe cleaner, and insert in the ridge around the upper half of the lid.
  6. Punch a hole through the top of the lid. Thread a length of yarn through the hole appropriate for hanging.
  7. Some kids prefer to have a loop on the end of a foot and a half so they can hold on and run with them. They "fly" nicely and appear as though the kids are being "chased" by a little ghost!
