Halloween DIY: Mummy Chocolate Bars

Oriental Trading provided items for this post. Additional items were purchased by Drugstore Divas and we were not compensated. All thoughts and opinions belong to Drugstore Divas.

halloween diy2There are days when I just laugh at myself and say, “I need to be a mom.” Today was one of those days. Because this project, it’s totally something a mom would do with her kids or for her kids.

Instead, I made it for myself. And Pete. And, mostly, the blog.

But it’s a really simple DIY craft that you can make with your kids and give out for Halloween. Plus, there’s a good chance you have all the materials at home. And, if you don’t, you can grab them at Oriental Trading (which is where I got the items I didn’t have for this post).

Mummy Chocolate Bars

What You’ll Need:

What You’ll Do:

halloween diy-2

Tape the streamer to the back of the chocolate bar.

halloween diy-3

Wrap around at a diagonal angle, making sure you overlap it halfway.

halloween diy-4

Continue wrapping until you get to the “E” in Hershey’s.

halloween diy-5

Fold the streamer in half.

halloween diy-6

Jump to the top and wrap the streamer around. Then tape.

halloween diy-7

In the gap left because you jumped to the top, add two dots of glue.

Add googly eyes on top of the glue dots. You can either make sure they are under the streamer so the eyes poke through or just drop them on top of the streamer. Either is cute. Personally, I like the one with the eyes under the streamer better, but the one on the right is easier. Just depends how involved you want this to be.

So simple. So cute. So perfect for Halloween.

Check back through the rest of October for other fun DIY posts.

    My 5 year old son was just pretending to be a mummy by wrapping himself up in the covers tonight at bedtime. This craft would go perfectly with one of the books I recommend in a blog post, called “Where’s My Mummy?

        I had seen this idea last year, done with a couple of different wraps, but I really like this one too. What a great idea for that child that you want to give just a little bit more(like your’s or grandkids) than your trick or treaters. JUST A THOUght… how about do these with minis for all trick ot treaters, or party goers?
