Hope all you mummies had an awesome weekend and Mummy's Day!

So I figured in honor of mummies everywhere, we could feature a fun craft project that's really cute and easy for the kids to help with.

You all know how much I adore pumpkins....well, here's another alternative to the traditional jack-o-lantern. It's a mummy pumpkin!

I found this one on the PLAID website, and they have soooooo many great craft ideas, so be sure to check it out! Here's what you'll need.....

Stiffy ® Fabric Stiffener, 8 oz.
Apple Barrel ® Colors - Black, 2 oz.
Plaid ® Glo Away™
Small faux pumpkin
Googly eyes 1"
Paint brush
Hot glue gun
Craft knife

1.Cut cheesecloth into several strips, 4" X 12". Fold in half lengthwise. Follow the instructions on the Stiffy bottle. Apply strips to pumpkin leaving the top and bottom not covered. Allow to dry.

2.Hot glue eyes to pumpkin. Cut four more pieces about 4" X 6" and fold lengthwise. Cover the top and bottom of each eye in a diagonal so you can see a little of the eyes peeking out at you. Allow to dry.

3.Using a craft knife, cut out a small mouth. Paint the inside of mouth black.

4.Brush the Glo Away on top of the cheesecloth for in-the-dark effect.
