{Halloween} Mummy Lights

This project is exactly up my alley....cheap, easy and fast, with a big finish. In fact, it's so stupid-easy, that I'm almost embarrassed to show it to you. But I love them so much, so I hoped some of you would too.

I spotted this pic on Pinterest as inspiration. It has no source though, so if these funny little lights are your genius, let me know!

All you need are some glass jars or vases, gauze and googly eyes. I used the mason jars from this tablescape, and found the rest of the supplies at the Dollar Store. Tape a gauze end to the top of the glass (I want to be able to reuse the glasses later), then wrap and twist as you wind your way down the jar. A dab of glue will hold the gauze in place and affix the googly eyes.

He was so cute, I rounded up more glass and made a Mummy Family.

When darkness falls across the land, light tea candles in your mummies for a scary glow!

Okay, so they are way too cute to be spooky. These are hanging on my mantel (in progress).

And a few more on the front porch (also in progress)!

This little project has sparked more Halloween ideas, so I'll get busy and show you as they finish. Do you do much decorating for Halloween?

  7. I love these Cassie, such a good idea. And you can't beat the 'cheap' part since it's just seasonal decor!

  8. So cute and simple! What a great idea. Pinterest is fast becoming my first go-to site in the morning. Sometimes I think I spend too much time on there because I have all of these great plans and inspiration but never get them done.
    Maybe I could drag myself away long enough to make these. :)

  30. Would any glue work? I am a home room rep for my sons special needs class. Thinking of having the kids do this. Looks easy enough for them to do.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi Anon -- I think you need a glue that sets fairly quickly, or else you'll be holding the gauze in place for awhile. You could always use double-stick clear tape!? I'm a fan of the glue gun, too...but you wouldn't want to burn any little fingers. :)

    Hope this helps!

Your comments are like crack, or popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. And unfortunately, because of insane amounts of spam, I've had to disable Anonymous comments for awhile. I just didn't need any more information on penis enlargements! But you can always email me! xoxo, cass
