Mummy Craft instructions
Wrap a doll with gauze
What I’m going to be doing is using the gauze out of this, but you could easily use first aid gauze instead. The first step is to decide how you want to wrap your mummy. There are two different methods to get that basic mummy shape. You can wrap the legs individually or wrap the legs together. Your doll’s arms aren’t going to Criss-Cross, they just don’t work that way. You can either kind of mummy it up as it would be in a tomb, or you can stretch the arms out, kind of like Scooby Doo. Start with your vision for your mummy.
I know that I want my mummy’s legs together at the bottom. I’m going to start by going underneath the feet and wrapping them and I can bring them out like this to get them started. I’m just going to wrap around in a circle. Again it just depends on what you want your mummy to look like. I’m just going to do the legs first and go around and around. It takes a little patience because sometimes your gauze gets tangled and you have to untangle it, then continues wrapping. I guess in hind site I could not worry about the pole that’s behind him and just start wrapping the pole. This is probably a smart idea, especially since his legs are not going to be separated.
Let’s just do first the version, with the mummy wrapped all together. We’ll see what this looks like and then maybe we’ll do a second option. I’ll just finish wrapping him up and we’ll see what that looks like. When you get to the head you can just cut and tuck the end a little bit. That’s one way to do your mummy and then he’ll stand up.
Let’s try another version. For our second mummy let’s wrap the legs and arms separately.
Wrap a Jar with Gauze and add eyes
Since I had a little extra gauze left over, I am taking a plain mason jar. I’ve stuck two googly eyes on for the mummy’s eyes and now I’m just gonna take the gauze and wrap it around the jar. You can use this little mummy jar for sweet treats, Halloween treats, pens, pencils, or utensils. These cute mummies would also make fun party favors for your Halloween parties.
You could put a battery-operated LED or tea light in it, but I’m going to be using a solar light for this on my front porch.
I hope this fun project inspires you to create some fun mummy crafts of your own during this Halloween season. I’d love it if you’d subscribe to my YouTube channel and my blog. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you in my next video don’t forget to like share and subscribe
