This simple design doesn't take long at all.
Easy No-Carve Mummy
Cheescloth can be used for a lot of things, even a curious looking pumpkin mummy. Wrapping cheescloth around a pumpkin and leaving room to expose some of the eyes gives your pumpking the look of a mummy. You can paint the area for the eyes black, or use black construction paper if that's too much work. Small pieces will do just fine and can be held in place with tape or glue. You can cut the eyes out using scissors once you are done wrapping. It's a very simple carvless design that kids (and parents) can enjoy.
There's something about putting candles in pumpkins that pleases the eyes and warms the heart. If spooky looks are too much for you then this decoration is a fitting way to both brighten an area and bring Autumn into the home. This would look great as a thanksgiving dinner centerpiece too!
