I'm so excited to share this upcycled DIY with you! My sister made these cute mummy candle holders last year and I loved them so much I had to share them with you all! It's such a great idea. Super easy, minimal supplies, and such a cute decoration for spooky season!

What you'll need:

  • Jars
  • White tape (I used medical tape!)
  • Googley Eyes
  • Battery Candle
  • Scissors

Start by wrapping your upcycled jar in white tape. I wrapped mine all in one strip but you can also cut up multiple strips of tape for a more layered look.

Once you've wrapped the jar to your liking, place the googly eyes on it. I love this part, you can place the eyes close or far apart, however you like! You can also draw on faces or even accessories like a bow for an extra touch, have fun and personalize it with your style!

The final step is to place a candle in the jar. I used a battery operated warm toned color light that had a flicker to it for a fun spooky touch! And that's it! I hope you enjoyed this cute and easy DIY!
