Not all mummies are scary and ghoulish. This friendly little mummy will greet your little goblins with a smile.
You will need:
12″ Acrylic Ball 5″ Styrofoam Ball 8″ twig wreath Pair of small garden gloves, and polyfill to stuff them Scrap of black fun foam or felt 3″ x 5″ piece of mat board or heavy cardboard Acrylic Paints: Lichen Grey, Black, & White Small piece of sponge 1 liner brush 1 yd of Muslin fabric, ripped into 1″ strips A few twigs and some spider web Spanish moss and a few fall leaves Glue gun and glue sticks
If you make this project
What you do
Use the sponge to apply Lichen Grey to acrylic ball and styrofoam ball. (if you poke a fork into the styrofoam ball, it is easier to paint. The holes can be where it is glued to the other ball and you won’t see it). Cut a tombstone shape from mat board. Sponge Lichen Grey, Black and White acrylic paints on both sides. Add black letters, R.I.P. When paint dries, pop the hanger off the acrylic ball and glue the styrofoam ball on. Wrap the strips of fabric around both balls to cover. Also wrap garden gloves with fabric strips. Glue ends of strips on so they all stay in place.
Glue spanish moss on wreath, glue acrylic ball on top of moss. Glue a few leaves around the wreath. Cut 3/4″ circles and a mouth from fun foam or felt. Glue on for face. Glue hands on body with twigs in one hand and tombstone in the other. Add spider web to twigs and anywhere else you like
