Today’s Duct Tape Mummies are a great Halloween craft for kids, but guess what, I had fun making them, too. If you’ve been around here for a while, you know I love a good, duct tape craft. And why not, there is so much you can do with duct tape and it’s super easy to use. In fact, I “wrapped up” all three Duct Tape Mummies in less than an hour. I am sharing links to a few other favorite, Halloween crafts for kids, and I hope you and your littles find a favorite for your to-do lit.
To make a Duct Tape Mummy, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 6” and 4” eggs
- Wiggle or googly eyes
- Duct tape in white
- Glue dots
- Optional: Plastic spider
- Tools needed: Scissors; plastic knife
To make a Duct Tape Mummy:
- Cut a small slice from the wide end of the egg, so that the egg will stand upright.
2. Rip a length of duct tape from the roll, and tear it into strips. Wrap wider strips around the egg first, and then fill in with more narrow strips. My widest strips were about 1-1/4” wide.
3. Attach the wiggle eyes with glue dots. Secure eyes to the face with small strips of duct tape, positioning the tape so that the eyes appear to peer out from under the tape.
4. Optional: Add a plastic spider.
