In an earlier post I gave a sneak peek to the Mummy I was in the process of making for Halloween. I LOVE Halloween and every year I try and add a couple more fun decorations to our every growing collection of spooky things. I especially like it when I am able to make this spooky something myself.
|We started with this plywood cutout (we actually traced our handy friend with the power tools…that explains the goatee!)|
|I put an old long-sleeved shirt and one pant leg from a pair of sweatpants on my Mummy. I taped him up using Gorilla tape and stuffed him with anything I could find…|
|shopping bags…yes, he’s green!|
|and even newspaper. This head was from another project my girls and I did at Easter time, it was a decoupage egg. Hey, whatever works right?!?|
|He stands about 6 feet tall!|
This is a half Mummy my girls and I made last year that sits in our picture window. For this Mummy we used; a large pudding box, newspaper, duck tape, an old sheet and fake cobwebs then added plastic spiders. Just looking at this gives me the heebie jeebies! Oh, and can I just say?….how much do you love duck tape/Gorilla tape?!?…seriously, this stuff could be used to build houses!! Love it!
|This Mummy was SUPER easy to make, if you are interested in how we did it let me know, I’ll share!|
