model magic® halloween mummy

Make some bone-chilling fun with these Model Magic® Halloween Characters! Get out your favorite colors and we’ll show you how to DIY a mischievous mummy below. We guarantee you’ll have a frighteningly good time!
Step 1

Project Note: The instructions below will walk you through how to use Model Magic® to create a monstrous mummy. However, if mummies aren't your thing, have fun and make any creepy Halloween character you like, such as a wicked witch, a vicious vampire or a gruesome ghost (just to name a few)!

First, pinch off about a fourth of the black Model Magic® and roll it into a ball for the mummy’s body. Then pinch off a little more black Model Magic® and roll it into another, slightly smaller, ball for the mummy’s head.

Step 2
Next, take more black Model Magic® and roll two short, thick tube shapes that will become the mummy’s legs and feet. The tubes should be long enough so you can see them from the front and the back once they’re in place. This will help keep this little guy from falling over.
Step 3
Now it’s time to put all the mummy pieces together! Place the head on top of the body and the body on top of the tube shapes.
Step 4
Roll out a long, snake-like strip of white Model Magic®. Place a marker on its side (such as a rolling pin), then roll it down the snake-like length of Model Magic® to slightly flatten the entire strip. This will become the wrap for your mummy.
Step 5

Use the long strip of white Model Magic® to wrap your mummy’s body. Be sure to leave some gaps between rounds (just like a real mummy). Leave a larger gap at the top, on the head, where you can add eyes.

TIP: You can make shorter strips and layer the wraps to make handling it a little easier.

Step 6
Now, roll two tiny Neon Green Model Magic® balls and two teeny-tiny black Model Magic® balls. Smash the teeny-tiny balls into the front, center of the tiny Neon Green balls to make his eyes. Place each eye on the front of the head, inside the larger gap.
Step 7
That’s all there is to it! Now, just leave your mummy in a safe place to air dry. This will take about a day or two, and then you’re ready to haunt the neighborhood with your new, spooky friend!
