Mummify Your Front Door for Halloween

The Mummified Door

Materials Needed

  • large roll of white crepe paper
  • large googly eyes
  • adhesive putty
  • scissors
 

Cut + Attach Paper

Outline all four sides of the door with balls of adhesive putty. Cut multiple strips of crepe paper the width of your door and attach them to the putty horizontally in a crisscross pattern to create a mummified effect (Images 1 and 2). After attaching the crepe paper the full length of the door, use your fingertips to push on each piece for additional hold. Trim off any excess paper pieces.

After attaching the crepe paper the full lenth of the door, go along the edge with your finger tips and give it a little push for additional hold. Trim off any crepe pieces that may have been a little longer than the width of the door.

Add the Googly Eyes

Put more putty on the backside of both googly eyes. Move a few pieces of crepe paper out to the way so you can attach the eyes directly to the door (Image 1), then pull the crepe paper around the eyes for  a more mummified effect (Image 2). 

Take additional putty and put it on the backside of both googly eyes. Then, pull apart some of the crepe paper to make sure and attach the googly eyes to the putty and strong surface. You can then pull the crepe paper around the eyes for additional spooky-ness.
