Mummies made from rubber coated flexible wire and strips of muslin are easy to make and a look cute hanging around the house for Halloween.

Halloween Craft: DIY Movable Mummies Supplies

To make these you will need: flexible wire (I used a flexible garden tie that I picked up in the dollar spot at Target – but I have seen these at dollar stores too. If you can’t find this – look for any flexible wire at craft stores), wire clippers and muslin.

Using the flexible wire, make the frame for your mummy body.

Halloween Craft: DIY Movable Mummies Muslin Fabric

Tear muslin into 1/2-inch strips. I do the “snip and rip” method to speed this up; make a small cut and then rip the rest of the fabric.

Wrap your wire form with muslin strips. Add strips by tying ends together. End muslin with a knot and trim ends.
