BOO! Would you like to create your own friendly Paper Cup Ghost for Halloween? These 5 easy steps below will show you how!
  • Step 1Print the template provided and cut out using scissors. Adult supervision is recommended when using scissors. Use a pencil and lightly trace around the ghost template onto an upturned paper cup.
  • Step 2Use a hobby knife and carefully cut out the outline of the ghost. Adult supervision is recommended when using a hobby knife.
  • Step 3Place down a splash mat or scrap paper. Mix together a small amount of blue and black paint. Then mix a small amount of blue and white paint. Paint the dark blue paint onto the top of the cup. Then in the middle use blue paint and blend it with the dark blue above. Finally, paint the bottom of the cup using the light blue and blend with the middle colour. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Mix a tiny amount of water with a small amount of white acrylic paint. Then fill the bristle of the brush with the watered down white paint. Gently tap the brush with your opposite hand to make the paint splatter onto the cup so it looks like stars in the night sky. Allow to dry.
  • Step 5Place a second plain paper cup inside the cup you have painted. Use a pen to draw a face onto the undecorated cup, via the ghost cutout. To give your ghost multiple expressions, turn the plain paper cup around and draw different faces around the cup. Your friendly Paper Cup Ghost is now ready to use!
