What you will need:

Paper plate

Acrylic paint

Black & white construction paper

Jumbo craft stick

Jumbo & mini googly eyes

Colored googly eyes

Glue stick

Scotch tape


Cut the center of a paper plate out.

Paint the outer ring of the paper plate in black paint. Let the paint dry.

Cut two long and thin pieces of construction paper and tape or glue them in a cross across the inside of the paper plate.

Cut a large circle out of construction paper and tape it to the unpainted side of the paper plate, leaving about a quarter of it open so that the ghost can slide into it later.

Draw and cut out two identical ghosts. They should be small enough to fit into the middle of the paper plate. Glue the two cutouts around a jumbo craft stick.

Cut a small circle out of black construction paper for a mouth and then glue on a pair of googly eyes and the mouth.

The ghost should be able to slide into the opening between the paper plate and the construction paper backing.


Glue colored googly eyes and smaller googly eyes around the backing to add an extra spooky feel to your haunted window. If you are feeling really creative, design your own eyes with construction paper. Make different shapes, colors and sizes.
