MUMMY CANDY CUP INSTRUCTIONS

Cut Streamers

First, cut white streamers into strips, about 9 inches long.

Scissors on table

Next, to create a thin strip,  take that 9-inch streamer and cut it in half, lengthwise.

Glue Guns and paper Strips

Gently, wrap white streamers around the cup, using the hot glue gun to secure it.

I recommend adding a dot of glue to each end of the streamer to attach.

Don’t worry about the “wraps” looking uneven. The best part about this project is that the more “unruly” it looks, the better!

Googly eyes

Near the top of the cup, using your hot glue gun, attach 2 googly eyes, for the mummy’s eyes.

Fill up with your favorite candy.

In as little as 3 minutes, you’ll have an adorable Halloween craft that’s sure to become a new favorite!
