Halloween Mummy Balloons

Halloween Mummy Balloons! || Design Improvised blog

Googly eyes and balloons make for a perfect match. Stick a couple on a balloon and you get instant cuteness! I made mummies with mine, but you could make monsters, aliens, Frankenstein, Dracula, a witch, you name it. Just use different colored balloons and a Sharpie marker to fill in a few more details.

In addition to the goggly eyes, I just wrapped around a piece of white crepe paper to "mummify" the balloon. Although Stella and Hazel like to call these "mommy balloons". ;)

How to Make Mummy Balloons


1. Take a strip of crepe paper and wrap it around the center of the balloon. Secure with double-sided tape in a couple of places. Repeat with a second strip of crepe paper.

2. Add a piece of double-sided tape to the back of each googly eye and stick the eyes to the balloon between the two strips of crepe paper.
