You Will Need:

Your Free Template

Dovecraft Felt

Toy Stuffing,

Googly Eyes,

Embroidery Silk and Needle


How to Make:

1. Print off your free template and cut out the shapes. Use the template to cut out the felt, so that you have two of each pieces of felt to make the front and back of your decoration.


2. Using a needle and embroidery thread, stitch extra detail into the front of your shape. We stitched a black circle, for example, to create the ghost’s mouth.


3. Stitch the two shapes together using black thread. Leave a gap to fill the ghost with toy stuffing.


4. Once you’ve added the stuffing, stitch the rest of the edges up.


5. Add googly eyes to finish.
