mummy treat cups

Mummy treat cupAs I continue to search for fun crafts for our block Halloween party, I came across these mummy treat cups and thought I would share. (If you’re looking for something a bit more spooky, the orange bow and bow tie can be replaced with a thin mouth out of black craft paper.)

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Plastic or paper cups, bathroom sized
  • White cotton fabric, an old white t-shirt could work great
  • Medium wiggle eyes
  • Black sheet of construction paper (or orange felt)
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • White craft glue

Here’s how:

  1. Cut a small section from the t-shirt, depending on how many treat cups you will be making. Start with a section about 6″ x 6″. Cut that section into strips ½ inch strips.
  2. Use the glue stick to line one side of a t-shirt strip, then starting at the bottom of the cup, wrap around and press in place. Repeat until entire cup is covered.
  3. Use white craft glue to attach wiggle eyes.
  4. Cut bows out of felt or cut a thin line from the black construction paper. Apply with craft glue.
  5. Fill your cups with fun treats: gummy worms, chocolate candies or candy corn!
