The kids and I are in the middle of making mummy clothes pin dolls for Halloween. I let them paint the clothes pins and heads with watered-down white acrylic paint.
After dotting on eyes with black paint, I glued the heads on with hot glue. I also added white pipe-cleaner arms by wrapping a piece of pipe cleaner around the mummy at the shoulder area, twisting the pipe cleaner once at the mummy's back, and hot gluing it in place at the twist.
I'm just glad these mummy clothes pin dolls are a much faster project than the clothes pin dolls that I made for my wedding cake. I didn't understand why people charged so much for similar cake toppers until I made a couple. When I finished my cake toppers six hours later, I had a much better understanding.
And yes, I am taller than my husband.
