Draw Ghosts to Display in Your Yard
The ghosts shown on this page are drawn on big, flat pieces of styrofoam. You find these in packing cases when you buy things. Usually they go right into the recycling bin.
I drew ghosts on them so I could put them in my yard for Halloween decorations.
WARNING: Do not cut the styrofoam sheets. I did and it was a mess. The little styrofoam beads get free and stick to everything. You will be picking them out of the carpet and off the walls for ages.
Do Not Cut Styrofoam

Notice How Giving the Ghost Teeth Makes It Look Funny
I wouldn't expect a ghost to have teeth. Afterall, what does a ghost eat that it needs teeth? The teeth are just to make it look goofy.

Erasable Colored Pencil Set
Since ghosts are usually white in color, all you need is a black pencil or marker to draw the outline and the face. These colored pencils come in handy if you want to draw a scene around the ghost like houses or trees and bushes or people.
I like this set because it is erasable.

Drawing Paper for You
You can draw on almost anything. I used flat pieces of styrofoam for the ghosts on this page. You can use scrap paper like the backs of old envelopes or you can get some nice drawing paper like this.
Ideas for a Silly Ghost Drawing
Remember that you can make the ghost any shape you want. You can give it a pointed head or a rounded one. It can fly and has hands or leave off the hands.
When drawing a cartoon, make the eyes bigger than usual for the face. The same is true for the mouth. See how the ghosts on this page have more head than body? That gives it the cartoon look.
