DIY mummy costume

We had four little monster’s for this year’s Halloween photo shoot: a witch, a Frankenstein (or better yet, Frankette), a vampire and a mummy. This morning I’m going to share our adorable mummy and how he came together. 

You’ll need: white t-shirt, white pajama pants (if you can’t find them, Sew Jewell on Etsy will make them for you. Just convo her), strips of white fabric (cheap, thin fabric works best to give it a gauze look) cut 2″ in width and about 4′ in length, Tacky Glue.

Start at the waist and rap upwards.

Then finish at the feet. Tacking the strips all along with Tacky Glue. The stuff works wonders and washes out so you can do it again later. I picked up both the fabric and Tacky Glue at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores.

As always, I hope you’re inspired! Come on and see our entire Halloween collection and DIY ideas!

    Thanks for the how-to! I’d never thought about an all-white layer of clothes beneath the mummy wraps — would make any imperfections in the “wrapping” less noticeable! Can’t wait to see more!

    Another alternative to the white pajama bottoms might be white karate pants. I’m sure there is a formal name for them, but they look almost like pajamas anyway.

    Kristie – so glad you like it!

    Kim – that is a fabulous idea. I hadn’t even thought of those pants. He could be a ninja mummy! ;)

    Very clever! Love those Jack-o-lantern lanters in the background!

    Thanks Kristen! I used to sell them in the shoppe and they went like mad. There were only two sets left after last season so I kept them for myself. ;)

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to produce a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and don’t manage to get
    nearly anything done.
