Mummy Head Decor

Create a creepy centerpiece with these easy-to-make mummy heads.

What You Need

  • Balloon
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Plaster cloth (we used Rigid Wrap)
  • Battery-operated votive candle

How to Make It

  1. Blow up the balloon to the desired size.
  2. Spray nonstick cooking spray on balloon and wipe off the excess.
  3. Cut the plaster cloth into 1-inch-wide strips.
  4. Dip a strip in a bowl of warm water and smooth the surface with your fingers until it feels creamy and the plaster is activated.
  5. Apply the strips to the balloon in a crisscross pattern, overlapping them but leaving areas of the balloon uncovered. Let dry.
  6. Pop the balloon and remove it from inside the mummy head.
  7. Cut an opening in the bottom of the head to accommodate a battery-operated votive candle.
