So this year, I decided to upcycle some glass jars to make mummified lanterns to provide a little more light while setting the mood. You can use beeswax candles or solar lamps, like the ones that I used for thisJack-O-Lantern, or battery operated flickering candles.
You can group a few lanterns together or put one on each step or line them up along a path. Regardless, I think they are functional as well as decorative. You can get creative with the facial expressions and make them smile, frown, scary, or surprised.
So let’s get mummified!
You will need:
- Wide Mouth Glass Jar – pickle jar, sauce jar, mason jar, etc.
- Gauze tape or cheese cloth
- Wheat Four or All Purpose Flour
- Black Construction Paper or facial feature cut outs
- Elmer’s Glue
