Ghostly Halloween Cut Outs

Free Halloween cut outs from Mia's craft Ideas, with easy to follow instructions, diagrams and photo's. The template give you two basic shapes that you can change and adapt to make your own unique decorations.

Mia's ghosts can be as scary or friendly as you like. They are made to a very simple design of paper chains and each ghost is joined to the other.

I have included a free template to get you started but you can easily adapt the design to make larger ghosts. When making the ghost cut-outs leave an area on both sides of your paper that is not cut through so the shapes are all joined together.

Materials and Equipment

  • Template
  • Scissors
  • Paper or card
  • Tape or glue (optional)
  • Colored pen for ghost faces (optional)

Halloween Ghost Template

Mia’s Top Tip


Cut the shapes out of white tissue paper and hang them in front of a window for a ghostly see through effect.

Try cutting the shapes out of thin card and taping them to the outside of a lampshade.

The shapes will create ghostly shadows around the room.

Make sure the shapes are fixed firmly though so they don't catch fire.

Halloween Cut Outs Instructions




Concertina your paper making sure it is large enough for the template.



You can draw the image on to the paper or cut around the template.

Place the template on top of your folded paper and hold in position with paper clips.

Make sure you do not cut through the paper at each side.



You can either cut out the faces from the template and glue or tape them onto your ghosts.

Or you can draw them on using the template as a guide.

Mia’s Craft Ideas



Scale up the template to make larger single ghosts to hang from the ceiling or door frame.
