Mummy heads

Just a black marker, some strips from  and old hanky,
glue and two sizes of foam balls or beads ,  make :

                             MUMMy HEADS

Draw a little black mask like shape  on the bigger  foam ball using the marker.

Dip the fabric  strips into some glue ( if needed you can thin the glue with some water) , then wrap the strips around the ball . Do not cover the mask shape. Leave to dry.

Glue two tiny foam balls or beads to the black area and draw eye balls on them. Add  a tiiny piece of fabric between the eyes to suggest a wrapped nose.  Do not try to work really tidy, a look that is a bit messy , is much more spooky.

There they are , you are all done.  I got a bit carried away and tried the same technique on a flower pot and a basket and I think they turned out pretty  well.

  1. Great idea. I love the look on the flower pot's 'face', sort of "What happened to the rest of me?". :D
