Halloween is just around the corner, and here is a fun craft that my kids love to make and it’s a great one for filling with candy or other goodies as well. As you can see, we love to fill our Mummy Cups with popcorn!
I will be sharing several different Halloween Arts & Crafts over the next few days, and these Mummy Cups are one of our favorites! They are so easy to make, and they are a great way to deliver treats, especially to teachers since they double as a pencil holder! (We used clear plastic cups, but you could also use paper cups and/or you could make them like we did when I was a kid and use tin cans!)
You will need:
Googly Eyes (the bigger the better)
Gauze (we used Curad rolled Gauze from Walmart, which was $2.48 for 4 ft, and were were able to make 12 mummy cups with one box. I cut 2 strips right up the center for the gauze and then cut again into 12 inch strips.
Filler: Whatever goodies that you want to fill your cup with. We used popcorn.
Directions: Start by gluing the googly eyes on, and then take a strip of gauze and stick it on with a dab of glue on the back of cup and wrap around leaving room for the eyes to peep out. It takes very little glue (just a tad) because the gauze sticks very well. Fill them up with your treat of choice, and your mummy cup is done!
