- Double-sided tape
- Black marker
Start by using a fringe cutter on the entire length of a sheet of paper. (We used 8½-by-11-inch and 11-by-17-inch sheets.)
Fold sheet over itself at every four-to-nine-strip interval, depending on desired width. (Tip: Experiment with paper sizes and folding intervals to vary the width and height.)
Join the two ends with double-sided tape; round corners of unfringed edge with scissors to create top of ghost.
Draw a face with black marker. Open ghost up to a cylinder with one end fringed.
Cut a 2-by-1/2-inch strip from a new sheet of paper; secure strip across top of ghost head with double-sided tape to create a loop.
Thread string through loop — and it's ready to hang.
