Duct Tape Mummy

If you're looking for maximum impact and an unforgettable memory of actually making this mummy mold, then this duct tape mummy is for you. And while this one by Thrifty Crafty Girl is a little more labor-intensive than other mummy crafts we've dug up, don't be frightened away! You can save time and effort by making a body mold only, then using a balloon as the head (we think it's safer, all around). The outcome is well worth the effort.
