What you’ll need:
Plastic or paper cups, bathroom sized
An old white t-shirt
Medium wiggle eyes
Felt, any Halloween color
White craft glue
How to make it:
Cut a small section from the t-shirt, depending on how many treat cups you will be making. Start with a section about 6” x 6”. Cut that section into strips.
Use the glue stick to line one side of a t-shirt strip, then starting at the bottom of the cup, wrap around and press in place.
Repeat until entire cup is covered.
Cut a simple bow from felt. For a “boy” cup, use white craft glue to attach the bow tie to the bottom of the cup. For a “girl” cup, glue the bow to the top of the cup.
Use white craft glue to attach wiggle eyes.
Fill with fun treats!
Save old t-shirts, blue jeans and even boxer shorts for use in craft projects such as these.
Wiggle eyes are available in a large variety of sizes from your local craft supply or discount department store.
Due to cottons stretchy nature, strips will cut jagged not straight. This gives your mummy character!

Yes save those old jeans, t-shirts, ect! I cut them into strips and make rag rugs from them. My sister made sleeping bags for the little ones out of jeans and 30 years later they still have them and they didn’t wear out!
Not to mention all those little crafts things you can use them for!
