Mummy Treat Containers

    Posted by  ·  October 29, 2008

    Check out these Mummy Treat Containers, They are a super easy Halloween craft. This was meant to be a “last minute” craft idea in case you needed something quickand easy. However, I wonder how many people save toilet paper rolls like me?  How last minute can it be if you need a slew of toilet papers rolls?  So if you are my kindred spirit and have your toilet paper rolls waiting for that perfect craft here it goes. It is really so simple it doesn’t need instructions.

    Fill your toilet paper roll with treats. Wrap white crepe paper from a roll around the toilet paper holder to keep your goodies in (at least three times around).  Glue two eyes on the front.

    Now fold the crepe paper in half and begin wrapping your mummy

      i am a person who saves tp rolls! haha.

      i used to work as a nursery school teacher and i would bring them in to make a million different things, so yes, this would be perfect for me! haha

      You should see the stash of TP rolls I've collected over just the past week! LOL
    16. Thursday, October 30th, 2008
      also, if you just push the roll off of the container, you can still use the tp and use the container for this! just a tip

      What a great idea! We make "party poppers" every year for New Years Eve with toilet paper rolls. I stole the idea from a teacher that made them for a holiday celebration at school. We fill them with treats, use multi-colored tissues & ribbons tied at each end. At midnight... we pop them open. We bring them along to parties every year & they are always a hit! If you just stay home to celebrate that are a fun thing to do too!! :)

      With all the homecomings that happened, you should have extra rolls somewhere. How cute!

      Ha, ha, ha. I have to admit that I am one of those people who saves tp rolls for no reason. I have three boys and I keep saying were going to make something grand. I usually just end up giving them to my son's preschool class. The mummys are a great idea.

      What a cute idea! I love the little eyes...adorable!

      Instead of the toilet paper roll, I'm going to use Crystal Light containers I've been hoarding and hand them out as teacher gifts!

        Stephanie, that is a fabulous idea!

      I just had a wrapping paper tube that I was wondering how I could use. I think I will cut it down and make mummies for my son's birthday party favors.

      Too cute! My hubby didn't know I was saving the TP rolls and recently threw them out...I am creating a new stash as we speak and just bought googly eyes yesterday cause I saw them and keep forgetting to get them for my kids craft projects stash. I am set to go...thanks for sharing and giving us time to save up our rolls. :)

      Since I don't have the toilet paper rolls I am using full pop cans to take to scout meeting. Anything that is round will work for this.

        Sue that is a great idea! You could even use juice boxes too!
