Paper Ghost Mobile

Wednesday, October 6, 2010
I've posted before that my little Oliver is totally and completely obsessed with ghosts right now. I thought it would be fun to make him a little ghost mobile to hang up in his room. This was a super easy and super fun project. 

Oliver loves seeing the little ghosties dance around his room.


All I needed to make this was a few sheets of white card stock, a black Sharpie, a small hole punch, and some monofilament.

I used my Cricut Expression to cut the ghosts from the card stock but they could easily be drawn and cut out by hand. I am a horrible drawer but even I could pull off a pretty cute ghost. You could also print out some clip art ghosts and use those.


I then used a Sharpie to draw on eyes and mouths on both sides.


Next I used a plate as a template to draw a round circle out of the card stock for the top. I think it was 7 inches (not that it really matters). I used my small hole punch to punch holes around the circle and in the ghosts. Lastly, I used the monofilament to tie the ghosts to each other and to the circle using a simple knot.


This was really easy, a lot of fun, and best of all, Oliver adores it.

Which Cricut cartridge did you find the ghost template on? Or did you just find it on the internet with the SCAL software? Love it! So cute! - Karen
