One of my day jobs is Chief Editor of Craftown.com. I’m working on beefing up the content over there and will be adding lots of new crafts to the site in the coming months. I’m even looking for contributors! So if you are interested in sharing your projects, check out the information on the contributor’s page.
This paper plate mummy is one of many crafts I will be making for Craftown. I have several more up my sleeve, this is just the first of many. This is a really easy project for kids and I think it turned out so cute! Get the instructions for the Halloween Paper Plate Mummy here.
Paper Plate Mummy
- 1 paper plate
- 1/2 sheet black construction paper
- 1-2 sheets white construction paper
- 1/2 sheet orange construction paper
- Glue stick
- Black marker
- Cut a piece of black paper about 5" x 3" and glue it to the paper plate (see photo).
- Cut two circles from orange paper, about the size of a half dollar. Use a black marker to draw a dot for the pupil. Glue the eyes to the black paper.
- Tear white construction paper into strips. Using glue stick, paste the strips horizontally across the front of the paper plate. Repeat this process, overlapping as you go, folding the edges over to the back of the plate.
- Use a black marker to add a squiggly line for a mouth.

I Love this and want to share it on my blog. Years ago I shared your Vampire Lollipop but the link where I found the craft is gone. I got it from Spoonful.com. Do you have it posted somewhere else? I’d like to provide a link. Thanks so much and have a wonderful day! ~Yolanda~
Amanda Formaro says
Hi Yolanda! Looks like Spoonful fixed the link, so the one you had should be working now :)

Oh, this looks like fun – and simple, too! My daughter's finally getting into the "scary" side of Halloween and I think she'd love this project. Thanks for sharing!
Cute + simple = the best!
This craft could also be used with the Bible story Lazarus. :)
What a wonderful thing to do for the children. Bless you! Your mummy is too cute:)
