How to make


Start by cutting two identical ghost shapes out of white felt (one will be the back, and the other the front).


Cut two oval shapes out of black felt and position on the front of your ghost and stick in place using tacky glue. Alternatively, you could use cream thread and a needle to stitch the eyes in place.


Using black thread and a needle (adult help/supervision will be needed here), or if you prefer a black pen, stitch or draw the ghost’s mouth.


Lay the back piece of your felt puppet on top of the table and run a line of tacky glue around the edge (make sure to leave a gap at the bottom to allow space for your fingers!). Place the front of your puppet on top, lining the front and back up so that there are no overlapping areas.


Leave to dry.
