{2 x 4} Mummies

Hello friends! I had to add just one more Halloween project for this year :) I've seen different versions of mummies this year and decided to make my own. I wanted to use what I already had so here's what I came up with.


Here's what you'll need:
  • Any scrap wood you have laying around. I used 2x4's left from when we tore down a wall in our kitchen last February.
  • Scrap fabric. This was left over from curtains in the nursery. I cut the strips about 1 1/2 inches thick and as long as I could.
  • Googly eyes
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  1. Wrap fabric vertically around wood and secure with a dab of glue at the end.
  2. Wrap fabric horizontally around wood. Tie strips of fabric together to create the bows and knots.
  3. Add googly eyes with hot glue.
And you're done! This project seriously took about 30 minutes from start to finish...and that's with kids doing projects at the same time...it was that easy! Enjoy!
