How to Make a Halloween Mummy

What you will need

  • Rubber coated garden wire (available in garden centres/hardware shops/pound shops)
  • Muslin fabric off-cut (or an old white t-shirt)
  • Googly eyes
  • PVA glue

How you do it

  1. Cut a length of wire. We used about a 80cm piece but you could use more or less depending on how big you want your Mummy to be.

  2. Twist and mould the wire starting with the head in to a rough body shape to create the ‘skeleton’

  3. Take the piece of fabric and snip into the edge at approx 2-3cm intervals then tear the fabric to make the bandages, the rough edges this creates adds to the look of your mummy.

  4. Starting at the feet, knot one edge of the bandage to the loop of the foot and begin winding around the leg, building up the layers to create the body shape. Repeat with the other foot working up around the body arms and head knotting any extra bandages to the ends as you need to until the wire is completely covered.

  5. Secure the last piece of bandage using either a dab of glue or if you have a needle and thread available, with a couple of stitches.

  6. Glue on the googly eyes and strike a pose!
