Easy and Cute Mummy Craft for Halloween
You don’t need a ton of supplies to make this not-so-scary mummy, and most of them you may already have on hand!
For this craft you will need:
- Large gingerbread man cookie cutter
- Cardboard boxes (you can get several mummies from one box depending on the size)
- Black craft paint
- Gentle paper bandage tape (it could probably work with masking tape even though that is not what is used here)
- Googly eyes
- Paint brush
- Elmer’s glue
Make Your Mummy Craft!
Ready to make your mummy? We love to read the story, “Where’s My Mummy?” to kick off this fun mummy theme, and then we are set to go!
First, trace your mummy onto a piece of thin cardboard (like a cereal box) and cut it out with scissors.
Then you will want to paint both sides of the cardboard cutout black and let it dry.
Next, glue some googly eyes onto your mummy! They give him quite the personality, don’t they?
Now you can start taping your mummy, overlapping each piece of tape and folding the edges over to the backside of the mummy.
Continue this taping pattern until your mummy begins to truly look like a, well – a mummy!
When complete, it should look pretty well covered in tape, with bits of black showing through, and of course the super cute googly eyes.
These mummies are perfect for putting up on a bulletin board display, hanging around the room, or taking them home!
