How to make toilet roll Halloween mummies

Posted in Halloween.

Oooh, spooky! It’s really never been easier to make your very own Halloween mummies (that are a little bit cute, let’s be honest!) from odds and ends you’ll already have in your craft box.

What you’ll need

  • 1 x toilet roll
  • Black paint
  • Paintbrush
  • 1 x roll gauze bandage
  • 1 set googly eyes
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Paint the outside of the toilet roll with the black paint. Set aside to dry.
  2. Using the craft glue, stick the googly eyes onto the toilet roll.
  3. Roll out a metre of the gauze bandage and cut a 1.5 cm strip along the length.
  4. Add a generous dab of the craft glue at the base of the toilet roll to secure one end of the bandage.
  5. Wrap the bandage around the toilet roll, working your way to the top of the toilet roll, being careful to avoid covering the eyes.
  6. Trim off excess bandage and secure the end with a dab of glue.
  7. Allow to dry.
