Ghost Bookmark Halloween Craft

We never have enough bookmarks at our house.

It’s probably because I and my daughters always have several books-in-progress going on at the same time. I know we’re not the only ones.

A lot of things can be used as bookmarks, such as scrap paper, folded Post-It Notes, or junk mail. But, I always prefer a real bookmark.

Free ones or store-bought ones both work, but I really prefer a fun homemade bookmark.

And, since Halloween is coming up, it would be fun to have a spooky bookmark to slip in between the pages. So, grab some supplies and lets make a fun Ghost Bookmark!
