Bhwa ha ha ha ha ... This weeks 3D Challenge at Paper Craft Planet, 3d186, is a spooky one. I had originally thought of doing a Barbie-Doll sized "Duct Tape Mummy" & filling it with Treats, which is what I'm hoping you'll try. Kinda similar to this:
However, if you have a life size Barbie, also known as my Dear Daughter, who is willing to help out her mum, you can try this Duct Tape Mummy LIFE SIZE!
My Dear Emma let me put plastic garbage bags around her body, arms & legs. NOT FACE. DON'T Do DANGEROUS things like covering up the face, honestly.
Then Carefully, a line down the back & arms ... Always keep your hand between you & the life person ...
Now, like I said, don't duct tape the head of a real person. Use one of those $4 Styrofoam Wig Heads you get at a beauty supply store. I had to look for mine ... I have 3 kids, and ya know one of them has it. Ah yes, of course, here it is ...
Okay attach the head on & tape up the lines you just cut up the back. Before I taped the arms, I put in 2 coat hangers so that I could manipulate the arms.
Everybody pitched in to help out... they had a blast.
At the bottom, by the feet ... I put 3 bags of sand to give it a bit of weight. I used 3 big bags of Fill & 3 rolls of white duct tape ... My DD is 13 years old & 6 foot tall. This is a tall Mummy. If it could, it would tap dance ... ;)
If you don't have white duct tape, you can use regular & paint it. Either way, you'll want to coffee/tea die some cheese cloth. I left it in the coffee for about 10 minutes & then hung outside to dry for 1/2 hour ... it was windy.
And then ... TAH DAH ...
We are definitely going to have some fun with this with the older kids at Halloween. I'm thinking we'll attach a speaker/walkie talkie ... hee hee.
