How To Wrap Your Mummy
To assemble, or wrap your mummy costume begin by cutting the sheets into strips. Make the strips as long as you can since this is how you will wrap yourself up as a mummy. The best way to keep the strips together is to sew them together, and then sew them to the under clothing to hold them all in place or use safety pins or even fabric glue.
To give the sheets an aged look, get the sheets nice and dirty and let them dry in the sun. Beat the sheets to get most of the dirt out but leaving a nice color to the sheets.
With the remaining material fashion a mask, making sure to leave holes for eyes, nose, and mouth. Finally take some black make up and apply it under your eyes to give them the perfect mummy look.
