So you remember the Frankenstein jar that I shared with you last week?
Well, I had 2 jars the same size and style. I knew that Frankie needed a friend to keep him company.
A mummy is just the thing that he needs!
This mummy craft is super easy and inexpensive. That’s my mantra you know — easy and inexpensive.
You probably already have most of the stuff around your home to make this with your grandkids.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Scraps white or beige fabric
Tear your fabric into strips that are about an inch wide. Tearing gives a ‘rough’ edge which is what you want for your mummy. (Use scissors to make an initial cut in your fabric and then tear it.)
Slather Mod Podge on your jar.
Wrap your strips of fabric around your jar. Criss-cross them like a mummy is wrapped up. Press the fabric down to make it stick to the Mod Podge.
Part way through, glue on some googly eyes. Continue wrapping the jar. Add Mod Podge on top of the fabric to make sure it is amply covered so it will stick to the jar. (Grandkids will love this ooey-gooey step!)
Isn’t the completed mummy cute?
There are two things that you can do with your mummy when it is dry. You can put Halloween candy in it and use it as a candy jar.
Or, you could put a votive light or candle in it. (Be really careful if you use a lit candle. There will be strings on your fabric that could catch fire.)
Isn’t this picture funny? It’s almost like Frankenstein got caught in the middle of doing something wrong!)
