How’s everyone enjoying our Halloween week? If you’re late to the party, we’re doing a full week of easy & affordable Halloween crafts, treats, and the like. Today I have a tutorial for making this cute mummy wreath, and earlier this week we shared DIY Halloween costumes you can put together in a day too. We have more fun coming tomorrow and Saturday too!
This mummy wreath is everything I love in a DIY project. It’s quick, easy and costs almost nothing. The fact that it’s adorable and unique is just a bonus! Can we talk about how mummy halloween decor is the best kind? I am not much for spiders…too scary! Anyway. Here’s what you need:
I’ve been using the same wreath form for almost two years now. I switch what it’s wrapped in every few months. The muslin I found was at Joann in the Halloween section, for 50% off! I got 1.5 yards but it was barely enough, so I recommend getting 2 yards.
Fire up the glue gun. While it’s warming, cut your fabric into strips. Wrap fabric around wreath form until it’s almost completely covered. Leave about an inch of the wreath uncovered, for now. Cut a triangular strip of black tape and place it directly onto the wreath form. Glue googly eyes onto tape.
Update: I have now figured out how to deal with humidity and camera lens fog, haha. I also don’t have a black door anymore, but this cutie looks good on green and white doors too. I took new photos of my mummy wreath (4 years later!) because the old one was bugging me. It’s not the worst I’ve ever seen, but… you know. Improvement is always good. ;) Here’s the old one just for kicks:
