Last Minute Cheesecloth Mummy Craft
Need a quick last minute Halloween craft to do with the kids? Then spook 'em with this mummy made with cheesecloth. Light his eyes up to bring him back from the dead!
I've seen lots of mummy tube crafts out there but for this guy I used some strips of cheesecloth. I had purchased a ton of it to make my ghostly Halloween costume this year! I had a lot of fun making it but there was so much cheese cloth left over I decided to put it to use some how. I came up with this mummy and wanted it to be a little different than all the rest and glowing eyes was a must for this simple project. A couple of holes and a t-light makes all the difference!
The image above was taken under some darker lighting to see the effect of this mummy's glowing eyes! Even though the process of making this little guy is probably self explanatory I put together a little tutorial anyway.
Step 1. Paint your toilet tube black, including the inside. Let it dry well.
Step 2. Punch two holes at the top using a hole puncher.
Step 3. Cut strips of cheesecloth and wrap it around your mummy. Secure with glue or a stapler.
Step 4. Use a glue dot on your flameless t-light to adhere it to the inside of your tube. In my photo below you can see how I'm using the side of the candle as the filler for the eyes!
Isn't he scary?!
