DIY Ghost Garland for Your Dollhouse

by Sandra Klein on October 25, 2021

When it comes to Halloween decorating, I'm usually on the cute side of spooky rather than scary — this goes whether I'm decorating my house or the dollhouse! 

One of my favorite projects is making a Yarn Tassel Ghost Garland 👻

This ghostly garland is super simple and such a fun project to do with the kids, so I thought I’d share it with you.


  • Yarn
  • A doll-sized book, or stiff cardboard measuring 3.5" wide
  • Mini pom-poms (or a piece of black felt) 
  • Thick string or twine
  • Glue
  • Scissors


  1. Wrap the yarn 15-20 times around a doll-sized book, or a piece of cardboard measuring 3.5” wide. 

  2. Cut a piece of yarn that’s about 3-4” long and thread it under the strands at the top of your cardboard. 

  3. Tightly tie the loops together at one end, and double knot it. This will be at the top of the ghost head and where you'll attach the ghost to your twine. 

  4. Carefully remove the cardboard and set aside. 

  5. Cut the bottom of the ghost to separate the yarn pieces and trim the edges if needed. 

  6. With the yarn left at the top of the head, tie your ghosts to the twine/yard. Trim any excess yard from the yarn you used to form the head. 

  7. Glue on two mini pom-poms for eyes, and let it dry!

I made this diy for my doll house, and it is so easy and cute! Once I made the first ghost I could easily do the rest of the ghosts like a pro! I highly recommend making it!
