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.

If you don’t thin the glue, it will be too thick to work properly for this project.

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 your strips of tissue paper around it.

Once you have one layer of tissue paper on, spread some glue over top of your tissue paper and wrap some more tissue paper around your tube.

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 your tissue paper does tear, you won’t notice. We’re making mummies after all!

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 everything is dry, you’ll have a mummy.

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

That’s it! Your Halloween mummies are finished! Aren’t they cute?
