Mason Jar Madness: I Want my Mummy

When our power went out for four days, it necessitated a fridge cleaning. The entire top shelf was full of jars containing little bits of lots of stuff that we weren't going to finish. It was a blessing in disguise. However, we must have run the dishwasher eleventy-million times with jars. (Okay, maybe twice.)

I found these mummy jar votive holders on a lot of those "20 Easy Halloween Crafts" or "40 Easy to Make Halloween DIY Decor Ideas" that proliferate on Pinterest. Much harder to find the originator of this project. It's not rocket science though. It does give you the opportunity to use up the gauze that is becoming brittle in the first aid kit you keep under the sink in the bathroom.

Of course, now when I inevitably need gauze, I'm going to be going through the Halloween decorations looking for this!

Your mummy is adorable. Do you use the battery operated candles inside your jar?

That is too cute and is my level of craftiness.

This is really cute, love the googly eyes! Do remember to remove them if you reuse the gauze for it's original purpose though.

Too cute! Blessings in sister lost her house in a tornado once. She swears it would be best to have that happen every ten years. I say it’s a little extreme!
