Whether you’re 8 or 58, this tutorial for my Easy DIY Ghost craft for Halloween is SURE to knock your socks off!!
Don’t worry- they’re CUTE ghosts… not SPOOKY ghosts! If you decorate for Halloween, then you better give this project a try!
Supplies needed for this project…

- Three wooden spoons (I used some super old ones I had at the bottom of my drawer… but you can buy them for SUPER cheap at any Dollar store!)
- White Felt from Dollar Tree
- Hot Glue Gun
- Ribbon of your choice
Step 1: Cut your felt in strips to fit each spoon. I made sure to leave about 1-2 inches on each side.
Step 2: Move your spoon down enough, to where the end of the actual spoon part is touching the end of the felt.
Step 3: Fold the long end of felt over the top of the spoon.
Step 4: Take a thin piece of ribbon/raffia, and tie it super tightly around the ebase of the spoon.
Step 5: Hot glue the ends of the fold to the back. This will help pin down the “pointy” part that the fold created, and creating a more “round” figure!
Step 6: Hot Glue your googly-eyes on! At this point, you could also add a mouth, or any other embellishments.
Step 7: Cut the bottom of the felt to mimic a “ghostly” look. I simply just cut waves into mine!
Step 8: Make your Re-Fabbed Bow! Once they’re all made, hot glue them onto the “neck” of each ghost.
Now, decorate!!! The purpose of using wooden spoons, is to have the long base… so you can stick them in vases, in wreaths, or anywhere your heart desires!
I love using wooden spoons for crafts, just for this very purpose!
HOW. STINKIN’. CUTE?!?!? I styled mine inside a black and white striped vase!
I cannot wait to reveal my Halloween home decor with y’all… I’m going pretty big this year, and I’m already OBSESSED!
In the meantime, you can check out my Halloween decor from last year!
If you decide to make your own wooden spoon ghosts, be sure to show me!
