Mummy Cups with Peanut Butter Popcorn



I saw some mummy cups like these in a magazine but they used fabric for the strips. I thought gluing on paper strips would be just as cute and so cheap because we already had all of the supplies.


All you need is:
  • Paper ripped into strips
  • Glue
  • Pastic or paper cups
  • Goggly Eyes
Put some glue on the cups and just start glueing the paper onto the cups. Try to cover all of the cup leaving no holes. Once it's covered glue on the eyes and fill them with whatever you like. 




This was such a fun easy craft to make and would be adorable as a little party favor or a treat for someone just wrapped up in cellophane and tied with a bow. I would have done that if I had any cellophane.

My girls loved making these too, this is how my 4 year olds turned out. She says it looks spooky.


We filled ours with Peanut Butter Popcorn which is one of our favorite snacks for movie night or game night. It is super simple to make and so addictive. Once you start eating it, you'll never stop. 



Peanut Butter Popcorn

1/2 c. Light Corn Syrup
1/2 c. Sugar
1/2 c. Peanut Butter
1 t. Vanilla
6 - 8 c. Popped Pop Corn (about 1/2 c. un poped corn)

1. Mix corn syrup, sugar and peanut butter over medium heat just until the sugar is dissolved.
2. Take off heat and add the vanilla.
3. Stir in the Popcorn and eat! Watch out, it's HOT for a few minutes.

I LOVE this idea!! I think the popcorn looks like the mummy's brain. Gross but so much fun!
