mummy key chain tutorial

Here is the deal. I must be insane.

I am volunteered to bring goodie bags for Lauren's preschool Halloween Party and I am also signed up to do the craft for E-Bots Kindergarten "Harvest" Party.

I am still slightly amused that my daughter goes to preschool in a CHURCH, they are having a HALLOWEEN party and wearing costumes. My son goes to PUBLIC school. They are having a "HARVEST" Party with NO costumes.

Dont get me wrong. I am TOTALLY cool with it either way. Just seems funny to me.

For the kindergarten craft I decided to go with a mummy theme again. I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased some small (I think they are 1 1/2" or so) wooden peg doll thingies and some tiny eye screws. These are super easy to make. I love him!

Here is a quickie tutorial for a super fast last minute Halloween project.

You need:

Wooden peg doll thingies
Small strips of fabric
School Glue
Eye Screws
clip thingies

Use a teeny drill bit to predrill into the heads of the dolls

Use jewelry pliers to screw in the teeny eye screws

like this

I bought this bag of assorted findings and used the small hooks 

Draw on some eyes with a sharpie and add some glue to the doll. Then wrap the doll up with the small fabric strips

I really like him! I will take this clip with me and help the children each create their own at Elijah's party this week. I predrilled and added the eye screws and clips to all of the pegs, then I placed the peg with attachments and a few small strips of fabric into snack sized ziplock bags. It will be a fast project for all 20 kids and they can leave with a little mummy clipped to their book bags! I really hope they like the project.

That is a great idea! I love it. Too late for this year for my kids but I am pinning it for next year.

Cute idea. I'm impressed that you made enough for the whole class. And I loved the "public school harvest party" vs. the "church Halloween party" story. Life is stranger than fiction! Thanks so much for linking up to Fabulous Friday!

Warmly, Michelle
