Origami Ghost and Decorating Ideas for Halloween
Best Origami Ghost Pattern
I took the basic origami ghost pattern and dressed it up for a better high flying ghost for the fall season. Cute as Casper and easy enough for older kids.
I have ideas for displaying the ghost and giving it tweaks so each one looks unique. The decorator can create a display with ghosts flying in many directions.
Ghosts are not just for Halloween they can fly for Day of Dead and well into the fall season.
Get some paper and start with the origami ghost pattern that follows below.

Shape Up the Ghost Using Your Imagination
All that is left to do is gently pull the top, tail and arms into positions that appeal to you. Ghosts can sit on a table, hang on the porch and added to a wooden craft loop for a mobile.
Hanging the Ghost
Tie a bead, small screw, small tree branch bit, a toothpick to fish line or thread. Thread it on a needle to pierce the ghost. Bring it through and tie a loop for hanging.
Each of your ghosts can look different by making the random folds, putting different expressions into the eyes, and hanging them at various angles.
The gold and silver papers offered below can be ghosts flying among leaves in many fall colors.
