This Cardboard Roll Yarn Wrapped Mummy Craft is such a great last minute Halloween craft! You can wrap it up in literally minutes, with very minimal supplies. Basically just a cardboard roll and some yarn!
We do love to create mummy crafts around Halloween. Not only are they a fun, effective yet simple decoration, but wrapping the yarn around the mummy craft is great for helping those fine motor skills.

To make our Cardboard Roll Yarn Wrapped Mummy Craft you will need toilet paper size cardboard rolls, white yarn, black paint, googly eyes, and scissors.
Yarn Mummy Craft with a Cardboard Roll
- Cardboard roll
- White yarn
- Black acrylic paint
- Googly eyes, small self-adhesive
Begin with a toilet paper size clean cardboard roll.
Paint the cardboard roll black. You could make the craft even easier and just leave unpainted, too. Let dry.
Once dry, adhere googly eyes. Self adhesive kind works best for sticking to the rolls, and you don’t need glue.
Make snips on the top and bottom of the roll.
Take the start of the yarn and insert into one of the strips.
Now, simply start wrapping.
When finished wrapping, insert the end into another snip.
And your mummies are now all wrapped up! Since no glue or even tape is required you could very easily unwrap as part of a Halloween game, who can unwrap the mummy the fastest, and then wrap again.
