When your kid’s in the mood to stir up some ghostly Halloween mischief, here’s just the thing.

Old wooden spoon
Gauze or cheesecloth
Scrap wire
Black buttons
Nontoxic glue


  1. Cut or tear the gauze or cheesecloth into 5 or 6 strips, each about 12 inches long and 1 inch wide.
  2. Wrap the wire around the neck of the spoon and twist in place to form the mummy’s arms.
  3. To make the fabric look worn and torn, wrap it around the spoon’s base, pulling at the edges. Also wrap the wire with fabric, letting the loose ends hang for a spooky effect. Continue to cover entire spoon.
  4. For the eyes, tuck the black buttons into the fabric and glue in place.
