Make these cute mummy candle holders in minutes with just 3 supplies.
Today I’m sharing with you how I made a “Pinterest inspired” project with materials I already had on hand. Yes, I know the Pinterest Monthly Challenge isn’t until the end of the month, but I wanted this quick, easy and fun craft to be part of our 13 Frightfully Fun Days of Halloween.
When I saw these super cute Mummy Candles from my friend Sarah over at Creative Ramblings I knew I wanted to make them ASAP. After I wrapped up my segment on Fox 13’s The PLACE I realized I had cut way more strips of muslin than I needed for the Mummy Pillow. So what do you do when you have a bunch of extra muslin?! You make mummy candles of course!
Aren’t they cute?! I think they look like a husband and wife. And isn’t that how they did it in Ancient Egypt?! They make a cute addition to our growing Halloween decoration collection. Sarah had used gauze on her candles, and they turned out super cute too, but I wanted to use up some of the extra muslin I had from the pillows.
Muslin Fabric (If you don’t have this you can pick it up at the fabric store. Joann’s has it for $1.99/yd)
Googly Eyes (I found a 100 pack with multiple sizes at Walmart for $1.97)
Cut your muslin fabric into 2″ W x 10″ L strips. (You will need 3 strips per jar)
Run a line of glue from your hot glue gun down one of the short edges and attach to the top the jar.
Wrap the muslin around the jar to get an idea of how you want it to look. Unwrap it and run glue along the other short edge. Re-wrap muslin around jar and attach to jar.
Repeat previous 2 steps with the other 2 strips.
I was able to do this project for free with materials I had on hand already. But even if you had to buy everything you could make these little guys for less than $5. What materials do you have on hand that you could make a fun Halloween craft with?
