If there’s one thing I love about this time of year, it’s coming up with fun ideas for my pumpkins. I’ve come up with lots of cute no carve pumpkin ideas, from a Harry Potter pumpkin to a black cat pumpkin. One thing I always try to do though is to keep it simple and I think this new mummy pumpkin may just be my easiest craft yet!

I always start with these traditional styrofoam orange pumpkins. The dollar stores always get a ton of them when the fall season hits and I totally stock up. You really can’t beat a dollar for a craft pumpkin!

The pumpkins were easy but finding the right kind of medical gauze was a little trickier. I wanted the traditional thin strips that almost looks like it’s falling apart but couldn’t find what I was looking for. I ended up narrowing it down to a self adhesive gauze and a plain, solid white gauze from Walmart.

After trying them both, the self adhesive gauze was by far the easiest. Like the name says, it stuck to itself as I wrapped so all I needed was a drop of glue at the end to keep it all together. It’s such a simple craft that even the youngest kids can make one, as long as someone else helps with the glue gun.

What's more perfect for Halloween than a mummy pumpkin? This cute craft is easy to make and perfect for any age!


  1. Start with a styrofoam pumpkin. Though I've added Amazon links to make things easy, I bought my pumpkin at a dollar store for a fraction of the price.
  2. The first thing you'll want to do is paint your pumpkin white. You'll probably need 2-3 coats of paint.
  3. Once final coat is dry, glue large googly eyes to the pumpkin. Wiggly eyes for mummy pumpkin
  4. Finally, take one end of the adhesive gauze and secure it to the top of the pumpkin with a drop of hot glue (not totally necessary but it makes things easier for the little ones). Older kids can just hold the end of the guaze in place while they wrap.
  5. Wrap the entire pumpkin, making sure to crisscross strips as you go. Be sure to leave room for the eyes to peek out. When your pumpkin is covered, cut the gauze and secure the end at the bottom of the pumpkin with a little bit of hot glue. That's it...your no-carve mummy pumpkin is ready for Halloween.

This not so spooky mummy craft makes a great Halloween party activity too. If you’re expecting a crowd, you may want to spray paint a bunch of pumpkins ahead of time to avoid the mess.

That way everyone can just have fun with the mummy wrapping and will all have their own mummy pumpkins to take home!

Ours wasn’t for a party though…we just wanted to make a fun craft. I was also excited to be invited to share this mummy pumpkin and the rest of my pumpkin ideas on Sarasota’s Suncoast View.
