There’s another mummy loose in our house. Sadly, if he’s looking for brains to eat, I think we’re in short supply. It’s just been that kind of week.
Want to mummify one of your own? Here’s how we made this fun, little guy.
Step 1: Remove organs (aka; eat the chips)
Step 2: Gather large amounts of salt. Just kidding, we’ve already covered that part by eating the chips. Paint your Pringles can black. We gave ours 2 coats to make sure all signs of previous life were covered.
Step 3: Cut what fabric (we used an old pillow case) into 2 inch strips.
Step 4: When the paint is dry, wrap your “bandages” around the can and attach with glue.
As you’re wrapping, be sure to leave a hole for the eyes.
I’m thinking the mummy will be even more authentic as the years go by and the cotton fabric starts to fray. I helped it along in a few places. If you put the cap back on, these would make fun candy holders for a Halloween party favor.
I’m envisioning a whole Halloween crew; monster, witch, vampire. I’m off to eat more chips.
