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?
