Here’s what you will need to create a Halloween Mummy Door:
- Oly*Fun™ Craft Pack Kiwi and Jet Black
- Oly*Fun™ Yardage Snow White and Hot Fudge
- Spray Adhesive
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Scissors – Fiskars are my favorite!
- Permanent Marker – Black
- Stabilo Aquarellable Pencil – White (great for marking on all types of dark surfaces!)
- Gorilla Duct Tape – Black
- Newspaper or Cardboard
Here’s how to make a DIY Mummy Door:
With a permanent marker, trace and cut two large circles from Oly*Fun Kiwi to create the Mummy’s eyeballs.
Trace and cut two smaller circles from Oly*Fun Jet Black using the white pencil to create the Mummy’s pupils. I used mixing bowls from my kitchen because they easily create these large and small circles.
In a well-ventilated area (or outside) lay out some newspaper. Flip the two black pupils over, mist an even coat of spray adhesive and then attach to green eyeballs.
Measure and cut a rectangle of Oly*Fun Hot Fudge the same size as your door or gate because the brown creates a creepy base. For the Mummy bandages, measure and cut approximately 30 strips of Oly*Fun Snow White 3″ wide by 36″ long, but don’t worry about them being perfectly straight or even.
My wooden front gate is 30″ wide by 72″ tall and the Oly*Fun Craft Packs are 30″ by 3 Yards, as a result, the measuring and cutting easy!
Apply the white strips of Mummy bandages with a hot glue gun, starting at the top, but leave approximately 3″ of extra material along both sides. The hot glue lines show through the Snow White Oly*Fun, however, it adds to the creepy vibe! Position the eyes in the center, about one-third from the top edge, glue to the Hot Fudge Oly*Fun and then overlap bandages randomly around the eyes.
Continue to apply bandages the entire length of the brown base, securing with hot glue along the way.
Flip finished door panel over. Cut and create loops with Gorilla brand black duct tape and then apply to the top and bottom edges, as well as, to the sides. Attach the Mummy Door panel to a wooden front gate.
If your door is painted, then skip step five above and secure the panel with the Gorilla brand duct tape wrapped around the sides of the door starting at the top.
My DIY Halloween Mummy Door was so quick and easy that I made a second one for my Mummy and then attached it to the unfinished metal frame of her storm door.
