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?

Those are adorable! I love a super cute & easy project like this. To Pinterest it goes!
So very cute! My kids would love to get involved with this easy project. I'm not a huge Halloween decorator, but I would be if all the decorations were this easy. Love it!
I have seen these babies on pinterest and am thinking i can dooooooo eeeeet!!
Adorable! My googly eyes project I mentioned on Twitter was a mummy project too… but it involved food : )
Now I know what you were up to with the googly eyes! Looks amazing!!!
Very cute and so easy. Gotta love that.
I love these Cassie, such a good idea. And you can't beat the 'cheap' part since it's just seasonal decor!
So cute and simple! What a great idea. Pinterest is fast becoming my first go-to site in the morning. Sometimes I think I spend too much time on there because I have all of these great plans and inspiration but never get them done.
Maybe I could drag myself away long enough to make these. 🙂
That is adorable! I love how easy and fun that is! Maybe I'll try it on my hurricane lamps?
Ohhh those are so very cute!! Simple, cheap and easy enough for the kids to get involved…I have to send this idea to my sister so my nieces and nephew can do it. I love your little mummy family!!
How easy and just darn cute! Thanks for sharing!
My kids would love these- so cute!
The mummy family is adorable! Love the big googley eyes.
These are so darling!!! And so easy I could actually do this project with my little ones! PERFECT! (c: I'm in love with the little googly eyes…actually, I think the tall one is actually making googly eyes *at me*…I'm flattered (c:
i have to get on the bandwagon b/c these suckers are adorable. makes me want to be a better person — actually they just remind me that i need to buy band-aids but cute ones nonetheless!!!!
I'm creeping myself out with all my comments on your addicting blog, but today I will loosen my restraints because it's a creepy theme! Actually they are cuter than they are creepy and so easy! Good pin snag!
I am the absolute worst at decorating at Halloween. I wish I was better, poor Emory! I love the glow these give off, maybe I will start with these!
SoooOooooOo SUPER adorable 🙂

Thanks for sharing… these are so cute! I will definitely be doing this little project next weekend… I'm pretty sure it's simple enough for me. 🙂
This is soo adorable…and talk about not costing a penny!!! I did mine w 5 votive holders and they sit on a short black wrought iron candleabra ! thanks so much!
I made these over the weekend. They were so quick and easy to make and look great on my mantle!
VERY cute and not so scary for little ones' YEAH! Very fun project
I saw these on Pinterest, too, and just finished making a few. So, so simple, but truly adorable!
Thank you so much for this awesome idea! I ran out and bought gauze and googly eyes as soon as I saw this post and my girls & I whipped them up in about 5 minutes 🙂 They are soooo cute!
Would any glue work? I am a home room rep for my sons special needs class. Thinking of having the kids do this. Looks easy enough for them to do.
Hi Anon — I think you need a glue that sets fairly quickly, or else you'll be holding the gauze in place for awhile. You could always use double-stick clear tape!? I'm a fan of the glue gun, too…but you wouldn't want to burn any little fingers. 🙂
Hope this helps!
Hi – I did this craft with my daughter and she loved it! I'm going to post it on my blog (60 Pounds of Pancakes) with a link to yours. It was so easy and cute! I'm just starting my blog, haven't even told anyone about it, but I wanted to include this darling project.
These are great! I love how easy these look… I think even I could make them. I've included this post over on my Halloween Mummies DIY roundup over on lemonthistle. Thanks for the awesome content!
