It’s October and not long until Halloween!

We have already started Halloween in our house with a pumpkin already carved out, the trick or treat bucket is ready and Leila has been flying around as a witch on her broom stick!

I have been looking for cheap Halloween crafts in the shops but there wasn’t much that interested Leila so I decided to make my own Halloween craft up for her, a pop up Halloween ghost puppet and it was a big hit too so I decided to share it with you all, it’s mess free too!

You will need:

  • A printer
  • Colouring pens/pencils
  • Scissors
  • Sticky tape
  • A wooden stick (a blunt kebab skewer would work well)


  1. Print off my free printable on a4 paper.
  2. Colour in the sheet
  3. Cut out the ghost & quarter circle
  4. Stick your ghost to your wooden stick using sticky tape.
  5. Roll the 2 straight sides of the quarter circle towards each other to make a cone and tape.
  6. Make a small hole at the bottom of your cone and push the stick through.
  7. Your pop up puppet is done, who will your ghost shout ‘boo’ to?
