Mummy Pencil

6 Oct

We’ve been thinking up some quick, easy and adorable Halloween crafts!  We’re going to share the quickest and easiest one today.  To make the mummy pencil you need:

Materials:

1. Pencil

2. Self sticking gauze

3. Black Sharpie

4. Glue

5. Wiggly eyes, if desired.

Directions:

1. Cut gauze into thin strips.

2. Wrap gauze around pencil.  If you start at the bottom and wind gauze around a few times before continuing upward, you should be able to unwrap later in order to sharpen pencil. Make sure to wrap gauze around pencil a few extra times where arms and head of mummy would be so that your pencil ends up being shaped like a mummy!

3. Using Sharpie, draw a mouth on the pencil.

4. Using glue, add wiggly eyes. (You can draw them on instead, if you want.)

5. If needed, dot glue on loose ends of gauze to secure.

Coming soon, a craft featuring 8 of theses.

 

Boo!

polish a pencil

We purchased these pencils for less than a penny each at the Staples back to school sale!

Materials: 

  1. Wooden Pencil
  2. Nail Polish
  3. Nail gems

 Directions: 

  1. Coat a pencil with nail polish. 
  2. Let it dry and recoat.
  3. Place small nail gems around the top of pencil.
  4. Paint metal banding with a complimentary color.

*TIP:  We stood the pencil in a Styrofoam block so that we could paint all sides at once.  Clay or play dough could also be used  to hold the pencil upright.
