Maybe I am showing my age here, but did anyone else have a Gumby toy when they were a kid?  I got hours and hours of entertainment out of mine, bending him into different positions and staging funny little scenes for my own amusement.  You can have that same kind of fun with a Halloween twist if you make one of these adorable, bendable mummies from Camilla at Family Chic.  Imagine a whole set of them having a little party on your mantle, or marching across a window sill, or hanging out amongst the elements of your holiday centerpiece!  [how to make bendable mummies]
