Mummy Halloween Costume

Time: One day

Effort: Fairly easy - some sewing

Materials:

  • An old sheet (off-white or a white one that you will need to stain with tea to make it look old)
  • White makeup
  • White face powder
  • Gray eye shadow
  • Black lipstick (or face makeup)

Instructions: Tear sheet into thin pieces. To stain a white sheet, soak it in a sink filled with hot water and about 10 tea bags. Let soak overnight. Let sheet strips dry. Wrap entire body with strips, tying the ends together. Use white makeup on face; cover with white powder to help set makeup. Use gray eye shadow to hollow out cheeks and eyes, black lipstick on lips.

  • Karo syrup
  • Dry oatmeal
  • Old clothes
