I saw these on a friends craft blog and thought they were SUPER cute !
I used a regular can, we had an empty can of green beans (the taller mummy) and an empty can of tomato sauce (the shorter mummy). I used the cheapest white muslin I could find and cut it into strips, then tied them together while I was watching tv. It's super fast! I glued the fabric around the can with tacky glue so that it would stay in place. Then I found a pack of eyes at Michaels for cheap - I used a coupon. I glued the eyes on tacky glue as well and voila! Cute little mummies! The ones I made after these turned out a little better, they weren't as tight and looked more mummie-esque!
