From easy paper plate mummy crafts for tiny tots to mason jar mummy decorations for big kids to make, you’re sure to find your mystical mummy craft of choice.
You won’t even need to go to the store to buy a ton of stuff that will end up hidden deep in the cupboards, these mummy crafts and projects use the simplest of materials.
And if you’re looking for some Halloween treats of the mummy variety, this post has got you covered too.
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!
