This paper cup mummy craft is so easy to make with kids, even if you aren’t a crafty person.

Time for another Halloween character with a glowing nose. Today we’ll be adding a paper cup mummy craft to our collection of Halloween crafts.

Last year we made these witches with glowing noses. They turned out so adorable that we decided to make a whole series of Halloween paper cup crafts.

All of our paper cup Halloween crafts are easy to make. Some may require more details while others need just a few elements.

Our mummies start with white paper cups, a touch of paint, some googly eyes and a few lines traced with a black marker. In just a few steps they are ready.

And that’s why they make great Halloween craft for kids as young as toddlers or preschoolers. Make them at home and place them by the fireplace. Or, if you are a teacher, make the mummies in the classroom with your students.

Just imagine a whole class decorated with these cute paper cup mummies. That class would be the envy of the entire school.

How to Make Paper Cup Mummies

Start by drawing the eye area. Paint it gray and set the paper cup aside to let it dry completely.
