How to Make It

  1. Download our free pattern and enlarge to fit the size of your mirror.
  2. Cut out the ghost shape (the gray portion of the pattern) and discard, using the leftover border to protect the part of the mirror that will remain unpainted.
  3. Trace the oval mouth and eyes onto newspaper, cut out, and position where you want the ghost's face to appear.
  4. Adhere the newspaper pieces to the mirror with temporary spray adhesive.
  5. Cover the mirror frame with newspaper, securing with tape.
  6. In a well-ventilated area, spray the mirror with frosted glass spray; let dry.
  7. Carefully remove the newspaper and use a razor blade to scrape away any remaining adhesive, avoiding the frosted areas.
