The Hallowe'en holidays are fast approaching and it's time to get stuck into some nice spooky crafts. Here's a simple ghost craft for children to make.
I had previously blogged about making woolly octopuses. Simply make them in white, following steps 1 - 3 you have a ghost!
You could also make the full octopus, adding scary faces (using wool or felt) to make different types of spooky monsters.
What you need:
- Googly eyes (and glue if they're not self-adhesive)
- An elastic band
Wrap the wool around the book 60 times.
Put and elastic band tightly around the wool, about a third of the way down. Then tightly tie some wool (of the same colour) just above the band. Remove the elastic band. Do the same a few centimetres from the top.
Snip the loops at the top and bottom. (You should now have 120 strands of wool at the bottom.)
Take 15 strands of wool and plait to form a leg. Repeat this to create 7 more legs.
Add the eyes et voilà!
