How do you make a Halloween mummy?

Wrap something in a bandage or a material that resembles a bandage and there’s a good chance it’ll look like a mummy. Crepe paper, gauze, construction paper and painters tape are ideal to imitate the wrapped bandages.

Paper plates, cups and toilet paper rolls make good mummy bodies, just wrap them in your “bandage” of choice, add eyes and, hey presto, you have a mummy.

So making a mummy should be a simple process and can be done in a huge number of different ways. Your only issue will be deciding which one of these gorgeous mummy crafts for Halloween to choose!

A little about me

Mom of 4 kids, baby sleep expert plus home organisation and kids activities and crafts

Hi, I'm Sarah

Mom of four outrageously gorgeous Littles.  Yup, four!  The twins are now two and that title still brings me out in a cold sweat… Yet I’m just as determined to give them the best without losing my mind.  I reckon it’s possible!  Most days.  

I love a challenge and have to find out they ‘why’, ‘what’ or ‘how to’  –  there are rather a lot of these when it comes to kids… 

I also love, love, love things to be neat and tidy and just so.   The Littles normally have other ideas!
