Intro: Halloween Standing Mummy Prop
So this Mummy idea is all over Pinterest so I had to give it a try.
I started with taping up my legs with packing tape. Then you cut down the back, re tape and fill with newspaper.
Next the top part of the legs
For the upper body - I had to recruit help!! LOL!! Thanks to my friends for the help with my crazy idea!!!
Once my upper body was taped up, I was cut out via the back and along the arms.
Upper half wasn't all that easy but we got it together. The body was stuffed with lots and lots of paper and taped together. The head was a dollar store skeleton head (though looking back, it was a bit to small and I should have wrapped it more to give it a bit more size).
Now for the wrapping. I bought Cheese cloth from the grocery store and soaked the cheese cloth in coffee. I then hung it outside to dry. Once it was dry I cut it up into strips and just started wrapping it around the body. It is really clingy so it just stays on, the ends I usually tuck under another piece.
I think he turned out pretty good for my first attempt, though smaller than I hoped.
I have since finishing him added a bit more cheese cloth to secure hit arms in place. He looks nice with my hand wall.
I may have to make another to give him a friend!!! I think I will have to wrap my husband the next time around.
