WHAT YOU NEED: A pumpkin of any size, medical gauze, a hot glue gun and some black and white felt.

Mummy Pumpkin

The first thing you want to do is put a dab of hot glue at the top of the pumpkin near the base of the stem. Then take your medical gauze, stick it to the hot glue until it dries, and start wrapping the gauze around the pumpkin. Once you cover the entire pumpkin, glue the end down with another dab of hot glue. Because you want the pumpkin to look like a mummy, gently tug the gauze into ropes so that it doesn’t lie flat, making your “mummy” look a little more ragged. Cut out an eye-sized circle of the white felt and a smaller circle of the black felt. Glue them together, and then onto your pumpkin. Repeat as many times as you want, making as many eyes for your pumpkin mummy as you want. Making this pumpkin was so fun, and was the easiest pumpkin to make out of all three. There’s no mess involved, and it’s a wonderful mix of cute and seasonal. If you’re looking for a quick pumpkin to decorate with little kids or at a party, this one does the trick.
