MUMMY CANDY CUP SUPPLIES
These quick and easy Candy Cups use easy to find materials to create a fun Halloween craft your family will love.
All you need is:
- paper cup, preferably in black or white (8 oz. each)
- white streamers
- a few googly eyes
MUMMY CANDY CUP INSTRUCTIONS
First, cut white streamers into strips, about 9 inches long.
Next, to create a thin strip, take that 9-inch streamer and cut it in half, lengthwise.
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!
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!
