Oh my goodness, we are a little bit in love with this tiny chap! We’re thinking about making a whole army of them to march about our sun room on All Hallows Eve once the sun has set and the moon is up! Dear readers, for today’s Halloween Craft we offer you clothes peg mummies!
My lovely Mother in Law is a crafter too and ‘gets’ that a bag of clothes pegs is a really good gift so we’ve had lots of little clothes peg people popping up over the years – they tell wonderful stories in our desk top puppet theatre, they fly on gossamer wings from invisible cotton threads tied to light shades and they wander round the garden, tiny packs on their backs looking for treasure/dinosaurs/something to Borrow.
If you want your clothes peg people to stand up you will either need to buy the craft pegs with flat bottoms or saw the pointy ends off real ones – my smallest boy is a wizard with his Swiss army penknife saw attachment!
To Make Clothes Peg Mummies You Will Need
Wooden clothes peg, white felt, white pipe cleaners, googly eyes, glue.
Look at those googly eyes, all desperate to be somebody! I think they have such character and these definitely want to be a Mummy!
You’ll need to use white glue (PVA) to make these and a little patience is required while they are drying. Older children can use a glue gun which speeds the process up a bit.
Wrap a white pipe cleaner around your peg at arm height and glue into place.
Glue on your googly eyes (Bostik sticky dots work well here, glue can be a bit slippy slidy and annoying for little fingers)
And there you have it – one easy Halloween Craft and one cute little clothes peg Mummy!
We were sent craft materials and glue to create some Autumn and Halloween craft so have a rummage around Thinly Spread for more spooky craftiness, we’ll try not to scare you! We are #BostikBloggers which gives us even more excuses for getting the glue out!
If you love our Mummy as much as we do we’d love you to share him! You can use those lovely sharing buttons over to the left, thank you!
