Once we got started filling up our windows with some fun Halloween sun catchers earlier this week, we just didn’t want to stop.
I mean, Frankenstein was looking a little lonely up there, so we decided to go ahead and make a friend to hang out up there with him.
These toilet paper mummies are so easy and so much fun to make and they really take no time at all.
In fact, they would make the perfect quick and mess free afternoon craft for you and your preschooler!
To make a mummy of your own, you’ll need:
– Contact Paper
– Black and Yellow Construction Paper
– Toilet Paper
– Scissors and Glue
First things first, you’re going to want to make your mummy some eyes. Have your child cut circles from both the yellow and the black construction paper.
Glue them together to create your mummy’s spooky eyes.
Next, cut yourself 2 sheets of contact paper and peel the backing from one of them.
Take your toilet paper and tear yourself off a couple of strips and cut those in half lengthwise. You should now have long skinny strips of toilet paper that are the perfect size for mummy wrapping :)
Now, to make your mummy look all wrapped up, place 2 of your toilet paper strips diagonally across the sticky side of your contact paper while leaving enough space that you will still be able to see your eyes as well.
Once you’ve added your mummy’s eyes, go ahead and fill up the rest of your contact paper with your toilet paper strips.
Remember, mummies aren’t perfect. The more crooked and overlapped your toilet paper strips are, the better your mummy will look!
Once you’ve got the whole thing covered in toilet paper strips, peel off the backing of your second sheet of contact paper and place it over the first.
Go ahead and cut your mummy out in whatever shape you like.
Whether he’s somewhat square or a little more round, he’s ready to go up on the window and decorate your space for Halloween!
