How to make your Halloween mummy craft

To prepare, you will want to thin your glue with water. I used regular school glue combined with water in a 1-1 ratio. Mix it well and it will work similar to ModPodge.

We used small sponges to spread our glue. I wanted the girls to be able to spread a lot of glue quickly and the sponges did the trick.

Spread the glue on your cardboard tube and start wrapping.

Once you have one layer on, spread some glue over top of your tissue paper and wrap some more. The water/glue mixture will not get gloopy or clumpy. If you dab your sponge on top of the tissue paper instead of smearing, your tissue paper will not tear. And, if it does tear, you won’t notice.

Once you are satisfied with your wrapping, set your tube aside and walk away until it dries. It will look like a wet mess (see above picture), but once it dries, you’ll have a mummy.

After your mummies are dry, glue on the googly eyes. Use regular-strength glue and not your thinned out glue for the eyes.

That’s it! Your Halloween mummies are finished!
