Cute & Simple Halloween Mummy Jars
I love Halloween! Not the scary haunted houses or movies, because I'm a big chicken with a huge imagination- which is not a good combo. But the dressing up, fun parties, decorations and of course the candy!! And since we don't want to scare the children around here ;) I stick to more fun decorations at our house for Halloween. So this year I made these cute and easy mummy mason jar guys to decorate our foyer table with. They are adorable, and so easy to make it's scary!!
Mason jars- any size
Double sided tape
White and Black cardstock
LED candles- optional
First put some double-sided tape on the side of the mason jar, then attach the end of the gauze to it. Then start wrapping it around the jar. Once you have it wrapped and layered the way you like it- use more double-sided tape to attach the end of the gauze to the jar.
Next cut out two circles from the white card stock for the eyes. I used a kids medicine cup to trace my circles....it's a very technical measurement ;) Then cut or use a hole punch to cut two smaller circles out of the black card stock.
Use double-sided tape to attach the smaller black circles to the white ones, to make the eyes. Before attaching them permanently play with the placement of the black circles, depending on how you want your mummy to be looking.
Then attach your eyes to the mummy with the double-sided tape.
I added a little white highlight to the eyes after I attached them with my chalk pen, because I felt it needed a little more character. But that is completely optional. Drop your LED candle in the jar and wait for it get dark!
