Cute, Marbled Ghost Banner Craft

Looking for an easy and different Halloween craft for preschoolers?  Recently we made these marbled ghosts with friends.  The results were so cute that we turned the ghosts into a banner to hang over our fireplace for a pop of DIY Halloween decor. 

Want to try this boo-tiful craft too?  Read on!

First, you'll need to marble your paper. 

We sprayed shaving cream (plain old cheap Barbasol) into a baking pan.  Then, we dripped food coloring and liquid watercolors into the pan.  (We chose purple, green, and black.)  Then, the kids mixed the colors around.

Then, I gave both children sheets of paper that they then pressed into the shaving cream.  I used a ruler to scrape the excess shaving cream off.

Since I was managing kids, I didn't get a chance to take any photos during the process.  Here's a photo of our setup after the activity finished if you needed a visual reference:

(Clean up was super easy.  I just tossed the towels into the washing machine.)

Once I scraped off the shaving cream, the paper dried very quickly.  We ended up with beautiful results like this:

(Aren't the papers dreamy?)

I cut out ghost shapes and drew on some cute faces.  Then, I taped the ghosts onto a piece of yarn to create a cute, crafted banner to hang over our fireplace.

Happy making, friends!
