I’m always torn on Halloween on whether I should turn the porch light on for safety or keep it off to add to the creepiness of our decorations.  This year, we might just go with a whole bunch of Halloween luminaries, including these cute mummies.  I happened to have some cheesecloth left over from making jelly, but you could use white fabric scraps or tissue paper if you really just needed a project to fill the time!

What You Need to Make Halloween Mummy Luminaries

  • Empty jar
  • Cheesecloth (or other white material)
  • Googly eyes
  • Paintbrush
  • White Glue
