How to Make a Paper Plate Mummy Craft


  • Small paper plates
  • Green paint
  • Large googly eyes
  • White crepe paper
  • Glue Sticks

Step 1 – Paint the Paper Plate

Green is the obvious color choice here, but purple also works well. You can do both and create a nice contrast in your Halloween decoration colors.

You want to completely cover the plates and your kids will have a great time slopping that paint on.

When done, set aside and allow the paint to dry for 5-10 minutes.

Step 2 – Cut Your Crepe Paper Strips

You now need to cut up your crepe paper into long strips that resemble bandages to be wound around the Mummy’s face.

Cut the strips to a length that is about an inch longer than the total width of the plate so you have enough excess to fix them on correctly.

Step 3 – Add the Face

Now its time to glue on the googly eyes that will hide behind the bandages.

Once the eyes are fixed in place you an start adding the crepe paper strips. You want almost complete coverage of the face, but leaving a slit here and there to show the green colors.

You also want the eyes to be visible in part to give off that cute but creepy look peeking through.
