It’s a ‘Wrap’ to make a Mummy Candle!

It is a snap or actually a ‘wrap’ to make a mummy candle…

All you need are these few supplies:

  • inexpensive ginger jar candle (mine was $3.99 on sale );
  • rolled gauze or cheese cloth;
  • black felt;
  • 2 googly eyes;
  • 2 buttons;
  • glue

Steps:

  • remove label from the candle (I submerge the candle in a small pot of water & let sit…after awhile it peels off easily)
  • wrap the gauze or cheesecloth around the candle & secure with glue in several spots;
  • let glue dry;
  • choose buttons to go under the googly eyes;
  • glue eyes to buttons & let dry;
  • cut felt into 6 strips – about .5 inch long & .25 inch thick;
  • glue eyes on tucking them under the gauze or cheese cloth just a bit;
  • glue on XXX for mouth.

Here is the before & after candle make over…(’cause I know you LOVE a good B & A! )

Wow…now wasn’t that easy?!  I tricked mine out with a bit of chain twined with a ripped length of white cotton.  You can add something to the top too, but that is optional.  The mummy really doesn’t need any more embellishment.  I used red translucent buttons, which look like they are glowing when it is lit.

Great craft for kids, fun hostess gift for a Halloween bash or for your own decor.  These are so inexpensive and easy to make why not wrap up a bunch & put them on the window sill on Halloween night…
