Home Economics: DIY mummy candle holders

imageHere’s another quick and easy DIY Halloween craft that you can use as a gift or to decorate your own home…. mummy candle holders! This project is so simple and requires only a few supplies. You will need rolls of gauze (I found mine in the band aide aisle at WalMart), some googly eyes (I bought a multi pack of different sizes at Michael’s), glue, and empty jars.

There is no right or wrong way to make these mummy’s. I thought it would be fun to put large eyes on the small jars and big eyes on the smaller jars. After I glued on the eyes. I used a dab of glue in the back to secure the gauze and started wrapping the jar until I was happy with the look. To finish off the wrapping, I tucked the gauze in the back and secured it with another dot of glue. Done!

I gave mine as gifts with a black tea light candle inside.

Homework: What is your favorite Halloween decoration?
