List of Supplies for Mummy Craft:
Instructions for making the cardstock mummy:
Step 1 – Grab the selected cardstock paper for the project and trace the pattern from the template on the cardstock paper with a pencil.
Step 2 – Use scissors to cut out the traced pattern from the cardstock paper.
Step 3 – Select white yarn and glue its end with the cut-out pattern’s top side.
Step 4 – Bring the glued yarn to the other side of the pattern. This will be the front side of the mummy. Start to wrap the yarn around the pattern. Keep space on the head part for the eyes.
Step 5 – Move downwards while wrapping the yarn around the pattern. Wrap the hands, body, and legs one by one.
Step 6 – Done wrapping? Bring the yarn to the other side (back side of the mummy pattern) and cut off yarn from the bundle, keeping about an inch extra at the end. Insert the remaining end through the wrapped yarns and apply a drop of glue on them to make sure that the wrapping is secured.
Step 7 – Select googly eyes for the mummy. I used 2 different sized eyes in the example.
Step 8 – Glue the eyes on the head part of the mummy pattern; along the space that we kept while wrapping the yarn and allow the glue dry entirely.
