DIY Halloween: Mini Mummies


I love these little dead guys! These Mini Mummies are really fun and easy to make and can go anywhere to add a subtle and cute creepiness to your interior space around Halloween... you could even use a variation of this technique on yourself for a mummy costume.

Do It!:

  1. Begin a thin cut in your muslin and finish the strip by tearing all the way through. Continue doing this until you have plenty of thin strips to cover your mini manikins.
  2. Optional: Soak your muslin strips in a bucket with dark tea or coffe for a few hours to give them an aged stain. Rinse and let dry.
  3. Now you're ready to wrap up your mummy! Start each wrap with a little dot of hot glue to secure the muslin in place. You'll also want to finish each strip with another dollop. Continue wrapping until your entire manikin is covered. Tip: Criss cross some pieces around the torso of your manikin for better coverage... kind of like a halter top wrap around the neck and under the arms. I also chose to leave a few ends hanging down to make them look more rustic.
  4. For an extra, humorous touch, use your card stock to cut out a little sign for your mummies. I wrote " Mummy, I'm home"! Feel free to use this or share your own witty mummy phrase!
