Fun Ideas for Ways to Use These Ghost Templates
I love Halloween and there are so many fun crafts and activities you can do with these free printable ghosts!
Below are just a couple of ideas you could try!
There are so many things you can sew with these free ghost patterns. You could make a simple toy plush ghost by tracing the shape onto two pieces of fabric and then sewing them right sides together, leaving a small gap to fill with stuffing.
You could also use these for applique – simply cut out the shape onto fabric and then attach that fabric piece to totes, bags, pillow cases, and more!
You can use these as a template for embroidery to stitch a lovely ghost design – perfect for Halloween-themed crazy quilt blocks!
You could even quilt a Halloween blanket or make a beautiful festively spooky table runner or wall decoration!
Create Halloween Invitations and cards
These templates are also perfect for card making – you could create Halloween party invitations or just make a fun card to wish a friend Happy Halloween!
Make a Spooky Ghost Banner!
Another fun idea you could do with these is to create a spooky ghost banner to decorate for Halloween!
To make a banner, you simply need to print out your ghost shapes and attach them to a string using paper clips or by gluing two templates together with the string in the middle.
Make a Ghost Journal!
Of course I love journals so I have to include this idea – use the largest ghost template to create journal pages! You can make several ghost-shaped pages and then bind them together by punching a hole in the top and tying with yarn or twine or use binder rings.
Create Tags and Labels
You can also use these to create tags and labels. Halloween tags are great for junk journals or attaching to gifts and party favors you give to family and friends.
Use as Flash Cards!
Want to make practicing your math facts more fun for the month of October? Use these as a template for creating your own flash cards! You could also use these for number and alphabet recognition practice activities.
Draw, Doodle, and Zentangle
Of course, blank shapes like these ones are just begging for you to draw and doodle on them! If you download the .png format of the file, you could even use it in apps like Procreate or Pigment.
Use As a Stencil
You can also use this free printable ghost as a stencil design. You can simply print and cut out and trace onto almost any surface imaginable – whether it’s a custom sign you put in your yard for Halloween or painting a t-shirt, sweatshirt or tote bag.
Use for Woodburning
Woodburning can be a lot of fun and this is an easy-to-use shape for beginners to easily make all kinds of Halloween wood crafts!
Decorate Your Classroom Bulletin Board
