I saw these adorable mummies on Craftaholics Anonymous, the spider hands we did at preschool & the ghost footprints I saw on Barney! {Yes, you can get crafty inspiration from a purple dinosaur! ;)}  I have since seen them all over blog land…so we had to give them a try, too! We gave them all a thumbs up!  Easy, simple & cute, cute, cute….and a little SpOoKy!!!! 

Here’s how we made them…all so easy & oh so adorable & fun to do!

 

Mummy Tutorial

You’ll need:

2x4 blocks {ours were about 7 inches high}

some white material ripped into strips

googly eyes

white paint & glue

We painted our blocks white.  Even my 2 year old painted his own block!  It doesn’t have to be perfect!  Most of it will be covered in a bit. Once the blocks are dry tie the strip of material around the top, wrap around & around, tie again & tuck in any loose ends.  Make a spot for your mummy’s eyes & glue on two googly eyes.  That’s it!  Adorable!

We made these cute little guys at preschool!  You put black paint on both hands & do one hand print at a time overlapping the palm & thumbs, so it makes 8 legs.  Eek!  A spider!!!

Halloween ribbon

boo! vinyl

Super easy here, too!  Make two footprints with white paint on black cardstock!  Let the paint dry completely.  Punch two holes & add a ribbon to the top, glue on two googly eyes, apply some Boo! vinyl & their you go!  Now these little guys are fa-boo-lous!  Love! {What a fun way to remember how big your kiddos are each Halloween, too!}
