How to Make a Mummy Costume
Updated on March 12, 2017 HOWTOMAKEA moreContact Author The mysterious mummy is a great Halloween costume theme for people of all ages. Mummies can be wrapped in gauze, bandages, sheets, heck, you can even use toilet paper to make one of these ancient characters. On this page you will find out how to make a mummy costume, how to apply mummy makeup, and these are no sew costume ideas. I am not a seamstress! Never learned to sew more than a button on a shirt, so most costumes I’ve written about do not involve anything more than a straight stitch.
The mummy costume is a great group costume idea. It’s easy enough to make, and I cannot imagine the look on your neighbor’s face when they see a bunch of mummies coming out of your house.
Add A Tulle Skirt To A Girl’s Mummy Costume
Add a bit of cute to your little girl’s mummy costume with a tulle skirt. The great thing about making your own tulle skirt is you can make it as long or as short as you like. You can also make your tulle skirt as thick or as thin as you like. You can find instructions about how to make your own tulle skirt on this fairy costume page. It;s an easy costume accessory to make. Use a ribbon or a stretch crocheted headband as the waist and you tie tulle in a knot around the waist band…try it, it is super simple and really adorable.
Look at this little guy, all wrapped and knotted up. This boy’s Halloween costume was easy peasy to make. Boys will love dressing up as a mummy. It’s scary, but doesn’t have to be too scary…just the right amount of Halloween fright for kids. Add a bit of makeup to the costume and you are done.

Make A Mummy Costume From T-shirts
You can make a mummy costume using t-shirts. For this easy, DIY costume project you will need:
A Pack Of T-Shirts – at least 6
White/Off White Top
White Leggings/Stretch Pants
Cut the sleeves off at the seam and lay the t-shirt down on a table. Measure 1 1/2″ lines across the shirt from bottom to top. (take a look at the picture below) Cut strips from those lines neatly. Now you will have a bunch of circular strips…make a cut at one of the seams so you have long continuous strips. When you have done several shirts, start to tie the strips to each other making knots when you do so. Tie 4 or 5 of the strips together this way. When you are ready to “put on” your costume, dress in your white shirt and leggings. Start to wrap yourself in the strips starting at one of your ankles and work your way up your body.
To start the wrapping process, tie the strip in a knot at your ankle and wrap your way up. When you have completed your leg and body, go back and wrap the other leg. Anytime you want to stop, just knot the strips together. This is an easy way to make your own Mummy costume.
