You'll need duct tape, saran wrap, and a patient husband for this. That last part is pretty vital to this whole project.
See how it says 'duck'? DON'T CARE, NOT CHANGING.
I wrapped my husband in saran wrap from the thighs down. Yes, that really happened. After he was wrapped in saran wrap, I wrapped him in duct tape. Yep, still for real.
Once I had that done, I cut the tape up the back to remove my husband. I did contemplate leaving him there, helpless and whining, but I'm a softy.
I stapled the cut to keep the shape...
And then I stuffed it with newspaper to stand it up. I repeated the whole process with the rest of his body, including the head.
He's got an air hole at the mouth, don't worry. And do you see the patience on his face? He has a love for Halloween and is willing to put up with all sorts of stupid stunts for the holiday. All the duct tape body pieces were cut out and stapled back together. I stuffed newspaper in them and I added a long, thin piece of wood in the back to give him a spine.
Once that was done, I had my mummy form. And it took just over one roll of duct tape so it was really cheap to make. I started dying more guaze like I did for the head waiter project and wrapped him up. And then, I had a mummy.
Love this guy. We named him Ramses. He's in the garage right now and if you aren't expecting to see him, he scares the bejeezus out of you.
**No husbands were harmed during the making of this project. There was a fair amount of whining but he does that anyway so there's no evidence that it had anything to do with being wrapped in duct tape.
