  • construction paper: black, white, brown, and green
  • glue stick
  • 2 drinking straws
  • narrow wire longer than the straws
  • markers
  • embroidery floss

  1. print out the following PDF template on card-stock and cut out the shapes: witch craft
  2. trace the shapes on the construction paper and cut out (one white cone for the ghost, a black cone for the witch, a green circle for the witch’s face, brown for the broom, white or red for her legs, and black for her brim)
  3. add a ghost face with marker to the white cone and add a witch’s face to the green circle then attach it to the black cone
  4. poke holes for the straws on the cones
  5. add glue to the tabs then construct the cones
  6. Tape or glue on the witch’s brim
  7. decorate and attach the witches legs
  8. insert the straws into the cones and trim the length if you like
  9. add glue and roll the brown fridged piece up at the end of the witch’s broomstick/staw
  10. use the wire to fish the embroidery floss through the cones
  11. tape or tie one end of the embroidery floss high, pull taught, then tape or tie the other end low
  12. Push the witch and ghost to the top of the floss and watch them wiz to the bottom, spooky!
