Make Some Mummy Candleholders
I cannot believe that it’s already the end of October. Where does time go? With our son almost being 18, the days of trick-or-treating are over. Well, until we take the Grandkids, but that will be a long, long, …….long time in the future!! Better be, anyway. 🙂
I wanted to make something easy and fun for decorations this year, and had seen something like this on Pinterest earlier in the year. It looked simple, and fun! Leave me a comment, and tell me what you think. I’d love to know how you would have done it, or a different way to use them. I sure hope that you like it, and hope you have a blessed day! Please be sure to comment and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks so much!!

Instructions for the Halloween Mummy Candles:
I started cutting a piece of the gauze that would work to wrap around the glass vase. I also cut a smaller piece to use as the portion that wraps around the vase.
Using some craft tape, I rolled a few pieces up the center of the vase. You could use as much, or as little as you need. I kept it to just a small amount, so I could unwrap it and use this for something else later, but it’s up to you.
When the adhesive was attached, I started rolling the gauze around the vase. You can trim any bits from the top or bottom, when you’re finished.
After I had that attached, I used that extra small piece that I had cut to tie around the center in a knot. That helps to hold the gauze on and keep it tight. You could add as many of these, as you wish.
Now it was time for the eyes. I have a bunch of googly eyes in my craft closet from past projects and figured I could just use some of them. I found two (2) large ones and attached them to the top of the vase with a bit of glue from the glue gun. Be careful to not attach them with the glue too hot, as it might crack the glass.
Almost done….now just add a battery operated candle to the bottom and you’re ready to go.
Just turn the candle on when you want to have the mummy’s glow and you’re set with #Halloween decor.
I hope you like it! Please take a minute to leave me a comment. Let me know what you would do different, or what you would add, etc. Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thanks!!
