Toilet roll mummies are one of our simplest Hallowe’en crafts. Kids of all ages will enjoy making these adorable, little guys, and you likely already have everything you’ll need on hand in your home.
Gather your supplies:
- toilet roll
- white tissue paper (or crepe paper or medical gauze)
- white yarn
- googly eyes
This is fun and really quite easy. Even the youngest hooligans can manage with very little assistance.
Begin tearing your tissue paper into long, narrow strips. Don’t worry if your edges are all ragged and uneven. That’s perfect! Don’t fret too much about the width either. It really doesn’t matter. Our strips were probably about 2 inches wide.
Next, give your entire toilet roll a thin coating of glue. Older kids can apply it straight from the bottle, but little ones might prefer brushing it on with a paint brush.
Now it’s time to wrap your mummy. Press an end of a strip of tissue paper into the glue. Then simply wrap the strip around the toilet roll until you get to the end of the strip. Press that end into the glue, and wrap a second strip around the tube if necessary.
Lastly, wrap a long length of yarn around the tube several times, and glue the ends in place, and attach the eyes.
How adorable are these guys?
