Mummy

This is a super easy project that takes hardly any time, talent or tools.
I chopped a 2x6 on my chop saw for the "Listen to your Mummy" sign.  I cut out the letters on my Cricut using black card stock.
For the Mummies I just chopped 2x4's so they were in different sizes.  I just painted a flesh color over the 2x4's then I dotted them with the end of a paint brush for the eyes.  If you choose to do this, clean the brush every time so the eye's don't get larger each time.  I shredded a white sheet and tied knots at the ends to connect them to each other.  I dry brushed some brown paint on them to antique the look.  The bases are just cut from a 1x6 that I chopped, painted and sanded.  I glued the Mummies to the bases and then screwed them to make them stable.

Now remember to "LISTEN TO YOUR MUMMY"!

Happy Halloween for the Busy Bee's.


Thanks for Buzzing by,

    1. Thanks they were fun to make. No, I'm sure I have heard it somewhere.
      I agree, the kids could all make their own. Just chop the wood to equal different heights for your children.
