Are you ready to create a simple, yet very fun, Halloween decoration? Mummy candle holders aren't just fun to make, but they will add something unique to your Halloween decor.

You will need:

  • Glass vases (available at craft shops, and thrift stores).
  • Gauze (from your local grocery store).
  • ModPodge or Elmers glue.
  • Googly eyes.
  • Double stick tape (helpful).
  • Foam brush.
  • Candles.

Determine where you want to put the eyes on your vase. I recommend putting the eyes on first with double stick tape to hold them in place. When you have them placed, start the gauze at the top of the vase by attaching the end with a small piece of double stick tape. Then simply start painting on the ModPodge with a foam brush, starting at the top of the vase close to the taped part of the gauze. Adding gauze, wrap all the way down the vase, gluing as you move down the vase. Be sure to leave some parts of the eyes sticking out, though you will want to cover part of them.

Allow to dry fully, then add your candles. Feel free to use traditional candles, but I used programmable LED candles (available at Target) so my mummys light up each day on their own (and turn off on their own too). Our mummy candle holders are on our front windowsill, welcoming our guests as they come up our front walkway. Other fun uses would be to have varying sizes in a centerpiece, or have them in the bathroom, or even make them in Mason jars which you could hang from the trees with wire.
