Originally Pinned By Crafts Re-Designed
I saw this cute and simple craft last Halloween and thought it was too cute to pass up. I ended up using this as a craft for my sister’s 12th birthday party (October birthdays get the best crafts!). The good news is that if a group of pre-teens can tackle making mummy jars, you can too.
The supplies are in the medium price range. To get the authentic mummy look you have to use gauze (grocery store or pharmacy). A roll of gauze is around $3, but it isn’t very much. To make about 8 mummy jars of various sizes I used about 6 rolls of gauze. Aside from that mod-podge is cheap and you can use old sauce jars that are clean instead of buying Ball jars.
Here’s what it looks like without the spooky effects:
Making the mummy jars is as easy as it looks. Get the gauze all mod-pogde-y and wrap it around the jars. I recommend cutting the gauze into different widths and trying to wrap it sporadically so it doesn’t look uniformly placed.
Hot glue on some googly eyes and you’re good to go.
It takes AT LEAST 24 hours for these to dry completely so best not to save this craft for October 30th.
You can use a tea light, or buy flickering LED lights to put in side the jars.
