Easy Halloween Craft: Mason Jar Mummies

mason jar mummies 1Bob and I threw these together yesterday and put them on our kitchen windowsill. I still can’t believe how something so simple could end up being one of my very favorite decorations!

To make your own little family of mummies, here’s what you need:

  • Mason Jars (any size, up to you)
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue (I used craft glue dots)
  • Battery operated tea light candles (I bought a set of 48 candles on Ebay for about $15)

How to make:

  • Wrap each mason jar in gauze.  (Gauze should stick to itself but feel free to use a small piece of tape if it doesn’t want to stay put.)
  • Glue 2 googly eyes to each jar.
  • Insert candle.
  • Squeal with delight over such festive cuteness!
