Making Mummies

Here is a small and easy craft in time for Halloween decorating.

These are very easy to make and would look nice sitting throughout the house. If you have a party, set them on the table and give them away as favors.

Buy small clear glass containers. I got mine at a yard sale. I think the round ones are cute. You could even make these with large clear vases and put a large candle inside. It would make a centerpiece any mummy would love.

Materials needed: clear glass containers, decoupage finish, cheesecloth, google eyes.

Here I am putting the decoupage on the containers. I use the small sponge paintbrushes.

Tear the cheesecloth into strips and wrap around and around the glass container of your choice and glue on the google eyes. After going around with the cheese cloth a couple of times, put the google eyes on. Then continue layering the cheesecloth.

Here are the finished mummies on display.

Sorry, I didn't give very detailed pictures or instructions, but I think you get the idea. They are very easy to make. Put a tea light candle inside. Be sure and watch any burning candles, don't leave them unattended.

Small or little ones, I hope you make and enjoy them.
