A Halloween craft for kids: DIY Duct Tape Mummies

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.

So dang cute & easy. DIY Duct Tape Mummies on CraftsnCoffee.com.

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:

  1. Cut a small slice from the wide end of the egg, so that the egg will stand upright.

Cut a small slice from the wide end of each egg so that they 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.

  4. These are adorable!! I didn’t realize I had missed so much. I was out of touch with life due to double pneumonia for the second time in a month. Spent some more time in the hospital and am too weak right now to do much of anything! UGH!! I hope it goes away soon because I am sick and tired of being sick and tired!

      Oh dear, I am so glad that you’re back at home and recovering, and very sorry about your illness. Put your feet up, have a nice cup of tea, and keep your craft supplies close at hand! Thanks for stopping in. Feel better! Sharon

    Those are super cute mummies! I think I’d skip the spider, though, in my version – looks a little too real to have around the house. 🙂

    Hi Sharon, love those mummies. I did the googly eyes monster craft a while ago and they are really easy to make and come out really cute.
    On my craft table I have our Halloween costumes which are 60% complete and the materials to start on scrapbooking pages from my daughters 1st Bday which are 1% complete. 😦
