A quick make to add to your Halloween decorations are these little Mummy characters. We made five of them and placed them on a piece of recycled cardboard.
We then also made a quick little movie using the iMovie App on the iPhone. Watch the movie at the end of this blog post.
- 2 long pipe cleaners
- 1 medium sized Felt Pom Pom ball
- 2/3 strips of an old sheet plain white / off white cotton (ripped to give the rough look to the edges)
- small piece of sellotape
How to Make:
Place the two pipe cleaners side by side and twist 3 times at the points in the picture below. Creating arms, body and the legs.
Pinch a piece of the felt pom pom out and twist the arms around it twice to attach the head.
Taking the ripped strip of cotton begin to wrap (bandage the Mummy body) starting under the arm, over the head, working back and forward over the arms, finally going down the body and the legs.
You may need to use a another length of ripped sheet to add dimension to the Mummy’s body.
When you have finished wrapping, using a piece of sellotape secure the end of the material to the body.
The Mummy is now ready to be positioned either sitting position or standing. To make the Mummy stand sellotape its feet to a piece of cardboard.
