Are you ready for a friendly Halloween ghost craft that you can make in literally minutes? Then this Easy 3D Ghost Craft is exactly what you’re looking for! Or not looking for. Because they’re ghosts. Boo!
The ghosts in this craft use folded pieces of white paper to form a neat 3D effect, with the ghosts popping off the page. This would make for a great card, or hang up a bunch with different colored backgrounds for a fun Halloween garland.

Make a Paper 3D Ghost Craft for Halloween
- White paper
- 4×4 cards of cardstock – assorted colors
- Black sharpie
- Glue stick
Begin by gathering 5 sheets of regular white printer paper.
Fold all the sheets in half.
At the fold, cut out a ghost shape. This way all the pieces of paper have the same shape.
Begin gluing one side of one ghost shape to the side of the next.
Do with all the ghosts until you have a pop out, 3D effect.
Now, glue one bottom side of the ghost to a colorful card. Ours were roughly 4×4 in size. And glue the other side, too.
Then separate the ghost in the middle. With a black sharpie draw eyes on both sides, and a mouth in the center.
Reshape your ghost so that it pops back out again.
Aren’t they spook-tacular? My kids and I agreed, these ghosts are definitely more on the friendly like Casper side.
