  3. When you get to the end of the strip of paper, add another dab of glue and secure.
  4. Continue this process until you have used all of the paper towel strips.
  5. Find a small opening in the strips of paper. This is where the mummy’s eyes will now peek out at you.

  1. I knew somebody was gonna come through for me with a craft for these toilet paper rolls. I’ve just been waiting for the right craft – and this is IT. My kids will love it and so will their friends. We’ve been talking a lot about mummies lately, and not just in conjunction with Halloween. They’ve even been studying a little about mummification. Thanks!
