How to make a Balloon Ghost…

See steps in photos

  1. Blow up a white balloon and secure with a knot.
  2. Cut strips out of a white bin liner or crepe paper. Make them at least 30cm long.
  3. Stick the strips all around the bottom of the balloon.
  4. Cut out too big circles for the eyes and stick them to the balloon. You can cut out a mouth as well if you want.
  5. Cut a length of string and tape this to the back of the balloon so you can hang your ghost.



  • These look really good hung up outside as a little wind and they really come to life.
  • You can walk around with your ghost in tow as well – it looks alive! – or is that dead??
