Follow the simple steps to make your own Torn Paper Ghost

1. DRAW YOUR SHAPE: Lightly draw a ghost shape on your background card stock or use our free template. We used a purple piece of card stock, but green paper  or orange would be fun options as well!

2. TEAR PAPER: grab your white paper and tear into pieces. Our pieces are usually 1/2 inch to 1 inch in size but any size will do!  The smaller the paper the more gluing required. 

3. GLUE PAPER: glue your torn white piece of paper into your ghost shape  with a glue stick until the shape is full. 

4. ADD  FACIAL FEATURES :  cut out your eye  shapes from your black paper, along with a mouth and two pink cheeks.   You can also add a white pupil to each of the eyes with a white paint pen if desired.
